Our classroom is a positive learning environment in which everyone practices tolerance, empathy, and creativity. By promoting healthy practices, following all the rules, and administering constructive feedback, students will foster successful relationships that lead toward educational growth and academic success. I will act as a facilitator of this creative growth process. Throughout our learning, we will explore media, techniques/processes, the elements of art and principles of design, subject matter, symbols, ideas, art history, diversity, reflection, analysis, and multi-disciplinary connections. In addition to the regular curriculum, there will hopefully be opportunities for your student to participate in art shows, including Arts Alive in Charleston.
