“Art is idea. It is not enough to
draw, paint, and sculpt. An
artist should be able to think.”
Gurdon Woods

PHILOSOPHY of ART EDUCATION

My job is to teach students to perceive, analyze, and make informed judgments about art. My first goal as an art educator is to teach 'visual literacy'. In order to understand the 'language of art’, students must learn the basic elements of art and the principles of design to allow them to see art with a critical eye.

Students must be provided with a sequential development of studio skills, and the skills for both creating and evaluating art work. Students must also be exposed to the social and historical contexts in which art is created in order to appreciate the significance of that particular work of art.
