Learning to See Through Art Making

jwp_modigliani_styleAs an art teacher with a continuum of experience from high school through elementary, I believe in schooling children of all ages in the art of learning to see through art making.

I look for opportunities to instill a broad spectrum of art experiences where students not only explore a variety of art materials, but also learn about themselves and the world around them.

Seeing the classroom as an extension of the larger world, I teach life skills such as being proactive, planning and prioritizing, and considering others through listening and learning from them.

Believing in instilling 21st Century skills at the earliest ages, I also look for opportunities to transfer my knowledge from my 16 years of experience in design-related fields completing my time outside of education in a dual role as Creative Director/Project Manager for a Philadelphia-based internet firm.
