I strive to make art class a safe place, free from bullies and harsh criticism, where students have permission to make mistakes and excel at their own levels. I want students to enjoy using their minds and hands as they learn new skills and explore new tools to create masterpieces worthy of framing and deserving of praise.
When kids have fun drawing and also feel rewarded by the quality of their own work, then they will continue drawing. When kids continue drawing, their drawing gets better!
Art gives kids a sense of pride and confidence in their own abilities as well as value to their self-expression. As observation skills and creativity are nurtured, students gain artistic wisdom that will only be an asset to whatever life and career paths they choose.
