"There's a time when a man needs to fight, and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny is lost... the ship has sailed and only a fool would continue. Truth is... I've always been a fool."

Welcome to all the ceramicists, painters, artists, sculptors, daydreamers, goofballs and especially those who strive for the impossible. It is my pleasure to welcome you to art class. I simply cannot wait to see what you create and how you will grow as an artist this year. Be prepared to get messy and imaginative!

My Education and Professional Background

Education and Professional Background (part 1) I have been making art since before I could talk. As I went in to high school as a young adult I would find anything that I could paint on to practice; this led to painted shoes and backpacks, shirts and often a painted face. I went to ASU as an artist, I began in drawing and painting classes with my peers as well as sculpture, design and color. I soon took classes to become an instructor. Education and Professional Background (part 2) There is nothing that has ever filled me with such joy as to show someone a technique and help them to ignite the love and passion for their own style of art. As I graduated with a bachelor's in art education I was the number one teacher candidate within my class. I am so elated to be in a school that has such wonderful students and I can't wait to be one of the few arts teachers here on campus!

My Educational Philosophy

I would like this classroom to work as though it was a college art studio. You are responsible for your behavior in class as well as your level of progress. If you would like to learn more or work more, that is always encouraged. In the classroom, each student must be a self advocate and determine their own level success. That being said, this class is very flexible and free. If you have artistic ideas that you would like to create other than the project that we are doing, we can discuss it! I encourage conversation and respectful discussion; if you don't understand something or want to discuss your grade or aspects of the class you’re displeased with, please discuss it with me! I am available most days before and after school if you need to talk about anything that is bothering you or something that you enjoy about the class that you would like to see more of.
