Teaching art is an interactive conversation between students and masters as they consider theory, history, process, and conceptual thinking. My approach to teaching focuses on skill sets that my students need to learn. I seek to inspire them to explore the medium and embrace its artistic possibilities. Because of the heavy use of technology and the stress it sometimes produces, I employ a certain degree of entertainment so they are not overwhelmed. This seems to motivate students to engage in group discussions and side conversations that leads to a richer understanding of the medium.
I utilize the use of technology, collaborative assignments, and experiential learning because it works. I demonstrate an idea. Then I have the students reproduce the process and then I encourage them to alter what they have learned and explore the aesthetic possibilities. I find that constructing projects to incorporate a group setting is beneficial to the overall learning outcome.
