How does art education benefit students?

"Art education challenges students to explore new ideas, think creatively, and take risks. Students are exposed to many techniques that include observational drawing, color theory, alternative ceramic firings, slab and coil ceramic techniques, weaving, digital graphics, watercolor, mixed medias, and sculptural materials. Every lesson taught in my program includes historical or cultural information as well as technique and skill development.

I display every student's work. I also work closely with the community and throughout the state to exhibit student work. Students develop interdisciplinary connections in my classroom that include the integration of science, social studies, math, and writing."
