Class Experience

With a Master's degree in art education and a background of teaching K-12 visual art and arts-integrated activities (in public school, summer camps, individualized lessons, and online with Outschool since 2018),  I'm excited to share my knowledge with students and facilitate meaningful discussions, analyses, and critiques of art as it is used in society and culture.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Due to the nature of this class, some images may be disturbing. We will be looking at paintings created by combat artists, photographs taken from the front lines, visual propaganda (some of which shows offensive and racist imagery), drawings and paintings created in European and American concentration camps during the Holocaust and Japanese American internment, and artworks that respond to the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A few artworks will also show nudity, so please be aware of this as well. 

If there is anything that is specifically sensitive for your student or might pose an emotional trigger, please reach out to me in advance!
