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

I hope my students take away a confidence in their abilities as a young artist, appreciation for art forms and media outside of their comfort soon, and I hope to see growth in each student by the end of the semester.

What is your favorite thing to teach and why?

I just love to teach art!  Anything that sparks a smile in my students is a project worth doing again.  I find that the most interesting projects for my students are ones using odd materials such as household items used as printing tools.
