I believe in fostering a fun and enriching environment of mutual respect that promotes self-expression and active learning, allowing students to stretch and grow in their skill at their own pace.
Creating artwork is a deeply personal process, as it is intellectual, emotional and intuitive to differing degrees. Each student shall be treated as an individual, as both teacher and student benefit from interactions in the classroom.
A strong foundation will consist of the learning the basics of several methods and handling of various tools and materials. Planning, design, and fabrication of each unique creation will be discussed as needed.
Whether working toward increasing skill, relaying a message, or capturing a moment of personal significance, my wish is that students experience an increased feeling of empowerment and independence as their process develops along their artistic journey.
