What do you hope your students take away from your class?
I hope that the students gain a better understanding of working three-dimensionally and a greater awareness of the almost infinite array of materials and processes that can be incorporated. I also hope they gain a deeper appreciation for the arts and what it means to be an artist.
What is your favorite thing to teach and why?
I love teaching Sculpture and Art History because it combines the knowledge of the history of art with the practical application of that knowledge to create artwork in real space.
