A Space to Create Art

My philosophy of teaching art is, to put it simply: Process Rules! I love teaching secondary students how to go through the creative process, from thumbnails, to small studies, to final art, giving them multiple chances to learn from mistakes. Once going through the process student work comes out better because they’ve learned from any mistakes and gained confidence through the process. At the elementary level the process is always more important than the outcome.
