As for Art Education, my philosophy is ever expansive. I have found that the more I learn, the more opportunities my students will have to learn. As the avenues I take to indulge my interest in the arts become more varied and cover a larger scope, these same learning variations will be present for my students in the classroom. I strive to include all realms of art and art-making, both traditional as well as tangential.
- Art History/ Criticism/ Aesthetics
- Reading/ Writing/ Debating/ Discussing
- Cultural History/ Geography/ Multi-disciplinary
- Traditional Art-Making/ Non-Traditional Art-Making
Conclusively, I believe it to be the responsibility of every instructor to promote modes of thinking above all else. These are the tools that will transcend the classroom and positively affect every aspect of a student’s life.
