I have a BA in art and a K-8 multiple subject teaching credential with an art supplement.  Prior to teaching, I worked in retail management for many years and traveled a great deal.  I have taught at many different  schools both public and private. I use this blog as a way for me to document some of the art lessons I have done with students and anything else that helps me on my art journey.

I tell my students that the only mistake they can make is not signing their name.  Art is much more about the process to me that just having something that looks good for the classroom wall. I think that being creative and immersed in a process is often more important than the final product.

I enjoy having my students create art from many mediums and historical perspectives. I like that my students learn about art not just from the past but from the present as well. I teach my students about famous artists from history as well as contemporary artists who are working currently. Not every project we do is successful but those lessons allow us to re-assess and think about what worked, what didn’t and how we might try something different next time.
