What do you hope your students take away from your class?

I hope they get a well-rounded knowledge of printmaking processes, as well as ideas for college portfolio development and generally a better understanding of what lies ahead of them if they choose art as a career. 

What is your favorite thing to teach and why? 

I really like teaching intaglio, and encouraging students to make a fully-developed drawing with purely line work. We develop images together through sketches, researching contemporary artists, and more - to have students dedicate time and energy to developing an image on a plate takes a lot of commitment and maturity, and they start to identify what their image-making interests really are.
