Seeking a Bridge 

 

Fundamental to my role as an educator is my ability to create a positive, productive, and challenging environment in which my students’ are encouraged to take risks, participate, and extensively consider and cultivate their individual points of view towards themselves, the world, and making. 

I act as facilitator, bridging artistic growth through coursework that simultaneously builds technical skills, in a range of materials and processes, as well as fostering a students understanding of historical and cultural frameworks through diverse critical texts, discussions, and presentations. 

It is my goal to empower each student to move forward as confident, articulate, and passionate artists; whose experiences within my coursework, enables them to traverse the depths of meaning and making throughout their artistic careers.
