One on one demonstration during mask making lesson.
I am a teaching artist. As a teaching artist, I employ a design process in the classroom. The students and I research, plan, execute, revise, celebrate and envision each lesson together. The purpose of this process is to help my students foster a deeper connection to their own creativity and imagination, thus encouraging further exploration and expansion of their own artistic appreciation, interests, and pursuits.
I am currently in a yearlong visual arts internship at the Dr. William W. Henderson K-12 Inclusion School, Lower Campus in Boston. My students range from 3 to 6 years of age. Henderson provides an enhanced arts experience and the school delivers support and enrichment based on an individual student's needs. It's truly a magical environment, where a student's positive interactions and school/community service are celebrated.
