My Students

Challenging students to use their imaginations, to open their minds, and to find their own unique style is what I do every day. I teach Design, Visual Art Journaling, Ceramics and Advanced Ceramics. The ages of my students range from 14 to 18 years old. Igniting the creative spark in my students is my ultimate mission. Creativity, learning to see...TRULY SEE...to use their imaginations to come up with creative solutions will carry my students far in life. Whether it be English, science, or math - all require creative ways to solve problems. I tell my students, "If you become better artists during my class, that would be great. Ultimately, what I desire most is for you to become more CREATIVE."

My Project

With Covid-19 & a levy that did not pass in our school district, our budget for art supplies has been cut by 81%! The items purchased with our school budget need to be for the bare essentials. The BENCH HOOKS & BRAYERS would help create a class set of Printmaking tools needed for the Printmaking Curriculum! In our classroom, Printmaking will be an exciting way for students to creating a "matrix" through carving a block & printing with ink! With the "matrix" students are able to print repeatedly to create editions & works of art!
