"Not only do our art students learn the rudiments and rigors of their craft, but they also appropriate an understanding of its history, and the cultural forces and aesthetic theories that have driven its development. I enjoy sharing my experiences and perspectives as a practicing artist with students in the classroom, setting up learning situations for them that challenge them to see for themselves, to think visually, and to find ways of giving shape and form to their own experience and intentions."
