About my class...

Minimize

My class is not your typical art room. For instance, I don’t call it “art” class – but “creative problem solving” class.  I like to mix up our curriculum between project-based, studio choice, and art history.  We spend about 5 minutes on presenting either ideas or review art terms; then I give the students a chance to choose what they can work on. We do some class projects, but most of the year I open a number of "studios" and allow the students to pick which media and topic they'd like to explore. You could say I focus more on the process than the product.
