Personal Statement on Teaching and Learning
My teaching philosophy has evolved over the past sixteen years as I have gained experience in the classroom, teaching online and within the studio. Reflecting on my role as an art educator, I have taken inspiration from the educational reformer, John Dewey. Like him, I have found that the art experience cannot be replaced. Art is immediate experience and then, beyond this, it is the clarification of experience by making, shaping, molding, or otherwise manipulating. The role of an art educator should be one that encourages and facilitates this direct encounter with meaning as well as helps students to overcome obstacles they will inevitably face. An art educator should teach students how to become lifelong learners and convey the importance of the continuity of practice, particularly when they are no longer in the classroom. Artistic practice requires dedication, passion, and endless curiosity. It is my goal as an art educator to facilitate these qualities in my students through a direct encounter with their artworks, and as a result, with themselves and the world around them.
