My Students

My students are a curious group of children. Living in NYC, there's a lot to be curious about and explore. But even coming from a large city, many of my students have had limited experiences.

I believe the role of the art teacher is to give the students an experience.

What is the role of the artist? They believe it's just painting and drawing but I want them to know there is much more to art. My students are open to learning new things and to different experiences within visual art. Because of this amazing attitude, I have the freedom to teach them anything.

My Project

Most of my students have taken maybe one or two art classes in their lives and have pretty much used basic or student-quality art materials. Their experience is limited to using tempera paint or watercolor with plastic brushes.

A part of my philosophy of teaching is giving students an experience.

This year, they are going to be a part of a large-scale project where they will have the opportunity to finally use artist-quality paints and tools. I want them to have a chance to touch, feel, and use paints that are similar in quality to what professionals use. For the students, art-making becomes so much more special.
