I believe that the artistic practice itself is a foundation for which to build educational experiences that allows for a student-centered curriculum and collaborative design. My approach to engaging students celebrates and utilizes each students inborn drives to create discourse, resiliency, and confidence. The arts, particularly, media and photographic arts allow students to find endless threads of expression in all disciplines and areas of their lives. Arts engagement fosters a deep sense of self allowing youth to engage in the world around them in new and empowered ways. Creativity can engage in social practice and social practice can be uplifted by creativity.
