BIO

I have been teaching the visual arts for about 10 years. I am passionate about how the arts can engage students who may otherwise feel disconnected and voiceless in school. I teach that art is everywhere and is relevant in everything students do. I relish in the opportunity to get students using their hands and thinking with the full brain. I love collaborating with other teachers to create new and relevant arts experiences for the students.

WORK WITH STUDENTS

BOOK ARTS:

– This medium offers itself to the integration of many subjects. Students create one-of-a-kind artist books which combine images and text.

– Books may illustrate creative-writing pieces or can be used to show their understanding of a topic. For example, I’ve had students create their own planet during a sci-fi unit.

– Students can also use book-making to create visual scavenger hunts of a specific place for each other

 

MEDIA DESIGN:

– Students consider images in the media and the messages they convey by creating their own posters, advertisements, brands, album covers, etc.

– These projects are very popular among students, as it allows them to explore images in their everyday lives, while learning to be reflective about the under-lying ideas behind all the media they engage with.

 

RECYCLED MATERIALS SCULPTURES:

– Students learn about the “3 R’s of the Environment” while creating folk-art projects.

– Sculptures can be used to help students understand the structure of a topic they are studying: insects/arachnoids, sea creatures, the solar system, plants, human-made objects, etc.

 

COLLABORATIVE PAINTING/COLLAGE:

– Through large-scale collaborative pieces, students learn about team-work. Students take on roles to guide the group through the process.

– This medium can be used to explore the environment, historical events, architecture, etc
