Class experience

US Grade

Students will engage with each other's work through a casual critical response (critique).
With 15+ years experience as a teaching artist, Heidi Jeub has seen many learning styles, school "cultures", and methodologies in teaching art. She found that we often miss the lessons of Foundations of Art and Design because we become so focused on the product. She teaches this content emphasizing the language around the foundations, because no matter the age or ability of the student, the vocabulary is the key to truly understanding art making. The cool thing about the foundations is that it is the basis of so many things, like music, composition, writing, and STEM concepts. 

Heidi Jeub is a nationally recognized arts leader, as a fellow with National Arts Strategies and Creative Community Institute from Springboard for the Arts. She is an abstract painter, bookbinder, and licensed arts specialist.
