I love exposing students to artistic experiences that they will keep for a lifetime. In my classes students are introduced to various mediums such as pastels, paint, and clay to learn techniques in drawing, painting, print making, and sculpture. My goal is for Art become meaningful for each student as they discover different artists, cultures and art movements throughout history.I believe Art is an incredible tool that helps students make meaningful connections with projects that encourage critical and creative thinking, collaborative learning, and hands on engagement in the classroom. I strive to link student experience to fine arts education through arts integration and diverse learning opportunities. Art increases motivation and enhances core curriculum objectives by promoting communication, expression, and problem solving.
