The arts help to expand cognitive abilities and develop creative thinking skills at a young age that will carry over through the process of education and into adulthood. Creative problem solvers will be the next engineers, entrepreneurs, and innovative individuals. We must train our students to succeed in education. This means teaching to all of the various intelligences and allowing the most authentic voice of each individual to be heard. Everything is possible in our lives, and art showcases the bewilderment of the great unknown more than any other subject matter.
School Art ProgramsMontana Artist in Residence MT State info As a Montana State Certified K-12 Art Educator, the possibilities of school residencies are endless! I have taught year-long drawing classes, collaborated with entire schools to create murals, connected art projects to a local gallery, art history, and national exhibits in addition to having a great amount of practice creating specialized projects. I have experience combining technology with education, and I have taught art to a K-grey audience. I would love to connect art to your current school curriculum and standards or design an independent project specific to your needs. Though my personal love is paint, I teach a variety of media.
