Art Education

Creativity is what drives humankind towards hope, and we need hope now more than ever. I am motivated to foster the innate creativity in every one of my students and build a space of acceptance, safe expression, artistic challenge and collaborative creation. For students of every age, developmental level and background, the art room is a place where they can learn to embrace and trust their creativity beyond the classroom walls. It’s also a place to bring all academia together under one umbrella to help students understand how every subject flows together, and that the process of creation is just as important as the outcome.
