Painter and sculptor in Houston, Texas that teaches from a studio at home.

Methodology

I use the "Art For Life" philosophy which integrates art with other subjects. I also use the student centered learning approach because I believe in giving my students the freedom of choice. I use project based and activity learning. My philosophy includes the contemporary methods of teaching art that will enable students to not only gain the technical skills of making art but being able to understand the concepts and investigate ideas that they can apply to their lives outside the classroom. Through studying the methods and reasons why modern and contemporary artists create their artworks, my students will be able to construct knowledge as well as create artworks of their own that incorporate techniques of these artists as well as the elements of art and the principles of design.

Background

I am an artist who received my BFA in 2005. I currently teach at Houston Independent School District. I have taught primary and secondary fine arts classes. My philosophy is fostering the joy of learning and using the "Art for Life" approach which integrates art with other subjects.
