Why I Teach:

As an educator I hope to nurture my students individual gifts and welcome their investigation of their understanding of the text at hand. Art is an excellent way to play and generate new ideas. My job as an instructor is to observe their natural interest and share resources that expand their way of thinking about that topic. I enjoy helping students better understand how they interpret what they see and being able to think critically about material, cultural references and form.  

Teaching virtually has been a new challenge for me. I teach printmaking, an art form normally done in a shop. I learned so much in a short time period. I was reminded what I love about printmaking and speci?cally lithography. Everyone should try kitchen lithography, chemistry is so cool!
