Online Art Classes

Philosophy of Art Education:

My work as a Montessori teacher heavily informs my work.  I have always favored philosophies that support multiple learning styles, but Montessori is a sensorial approach to learning with heart.  Respect for the person, independence, multiple learning styles, and guidance are at the forefront of my teaching philosophy.  I respect the students for who they are. I look for what they need.
