Teaching Philosophy:

  • I believe in giving my students a strong foundation when it comes to art making. In my classes, we generally work with traditional materials and explore traditional approaches -such as working directly from life. I strongly encourage students to take risks within the limited criteria in the assignments. I urge them to embrace mistakes and learn from each other as well as from the masters. Students will explore non-traditional materials and approaches when the basics are practiced and understood. My hope and goal is for the studio art student to graduate with a deep understanding, appreciation and on-going passion for the visual arts.
