More Coming soon.....

 

Visual Arts Core Curriculum utilizes concepts of Artistic Perception, Creative Expression, Historical and Cultural Context, Aesthetic Valuing, and Connection, relationships and Applications. I also use the Studio Habits of Mind framework (develop craft, engage and persist, envision, express, observe, reflect. Stretch and explore, understanding the art world.

I intend to help students achieve their academic potential and a sense of community through their school. Through methods that promote confidence in group dynamics and public speaking, I think that each student can become prepared to take on the next steps of pursuing a career after High School. I believe that a real teacher allows students to grow, facilitating that growth at the students' own speed and observing the learning style and unique process of that student and responding to individual needs woven into a group lessons.
