Description

Class Experience

The student artist will learn five of the elements of the design. 
The student artist will use the elements of design in an self created artwork. 
The Student artist will become more comfortable talking about art. 
The student will become aware of the emotional connections to art.  
I have a MFA in art education with over 13 years teaching experience. I have BAs In theatre design and performance. 
 I have taught all ages from early elementary through adults. I an arts integration education specialist, and worked as a Windgate fellow, in a 2 year longitudinal study with Crystal Bridiges Museum Of American Art, University of Arkansas, and Trike Theatre for Youth. Where I created  and taught a  cross-curricular fully arts integrated curriculum for over 1000 students in elementary.  I also created and taught teacher professional developments on how to teach with arts integration. I also taught master classes in craft, design , storytelling, teaching from works of art and several more. 
I have work as a high school  theater teacher and was the head of the theatre department where I created the curriculum, for over 4 sections of theatre 1-4 and speech and debate. I have worked as an artist in residence for the Delta Arts Alliance, I taught several hundred students ranging in ages 4-90 over the course of a few years, 6 different art mediums, theatre class , directed 9 different  performances , poetry , and dance. I was also on the team that rewrote the state standards for Mississippi department of education. I am a well educated professional who uses the newest best practices in my classroom and I teach to the whole child. What this means is I never use just one standard old method of teaching in my lessons, I cultivate creativity, build on kinesthetic learning, activate and access mult-learning patterns and pathways to ensure deeper learning.   Kinesthetic learning is very important to teaching to the whole child. Neuroscience proves to be effective teachers and for a child to learn we must teach to the whole child and activate more parts of the brain kinesthetic learning is key. When we have a student just sit and listen and receive information you are not teaching to the whole child's brain just part of the brain is activated. However if you have them move and consciously activate more of their brain while learning a new subject it create a deeper understanding and a retrieval cue  for later informational recall.  This science is what I base my teaching on actively accessing more of the child's brain to create a deeper understanding of the material. 
Each week the student will receive a challenge to create a work of art using the new element and techniques they have learned, to share with the class the next week. This is not mandatory to share, but I strongly encourage the student artist, that even if they are not at a place where they want someone else to see and talk about their art ,they should at least practice and make the artwork  anyway. 
the students will need at least 2-3 blank sheets of copy paper, a pencil with an eraser, colors ( preferably crayons or color pencils but markers are fine also) they will need the paper and pencil every class and the colors on the week we study color.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessments are informal and based on what they share . 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I always encourage my parents to let their young artist teach them and to draw with them. thins time in their lives is so very special and art is a deep and meaningful way to talk to and connect to your young artist. You will be surprised what you can learn from a child by drawing/ creating with them and getting them to really talk about their creations and art.  Not only is that important for the development of the child but it creates an unique insight into the inner workings of your young artist.
