art education benefit students?
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."
