I love the work I do as a Teaching Artist! Using analogies in my method of teaching, I explain to my students how art relates to their everyday lives through experiential learning. During the art making process my students gain skills in critical thinking, reflection and discovering empathetic solutions for their individual or collaborative ideas.
Art is visual language. A vehicle to empower and encourage students to be inspired. I have worked with 3rd to 8th grade students as well as adults. Making a connection with my students is vital in my support of their learning differences as they discover their voices.
