Teaching is an act of sharing. Each person brings a rich inner intelligence to the table; I listen, witness, support, and facilitate their vision, distinct from my own, and engage that vision through the material spaces of art. I meet each artwork as an autonomous being, a verb, an action in the world.
Teaching keeps me curious, keeps me honest, keeps me learning and practicing egalitarian ways of thinking, speaking, and acting. I challenge my assumptions and ideas, and invite others to explore theirs. We learn together, to think anew about art and about the world. Teaching is hard and inspiring and filled with learning.
I work with people of all ages, from university and graduate level, from K-12 and community, and with professional artists looking for rigorous critical feedback, professional mentoring, and artistic community.
