As an arts educator I strive to provide a foundation for my students that will help them as they mature as artists and as individuals. My approach to teaching is an inquiry-based model that is based on self-exploration, modeling and guiding. Students are given the space to explore their interests and develop their own ideas. They are challenged to use critical thinking skills to come up with innovative solutions. Creating an safe environment that inspires experimentation, risk taking, working together and building community.
