TEACHING
PHILOSOPHY

YOUR STUDENTS GROW.
BE THEIR LIGHT.

Our students have the power to lead us in the right direction: we just need to be ready to listen.

 

As an Artist-Educator, I am inspired by my studio practice and the modern landscape of the art world - through galleries, international museums and community art spaces.

 
Our art room is a place of connection, experimentation, play, and exploration. We are always making connections across disciplines and throughout the contemporary art world.  

 

We are scientists, activists and adventurers - but most importantly: WE ARE ARTISTS!

MONOPRINT MAGIC

This is a collection of student work created in Elementary visual arts classes. Students were to create Monoprints, a form of printmaking that can only be generated once - a printed painting! 

 

They explored both additive and subtractive printing techniques, and then refined their pieces with oil pastel.

 

Students were assessed on artistic initiative, composition, line, and shape.
