I've been teaching grades K-12 for over a decade and have used this curriculum with a multitude of ages. This curriculum has been used and modified over the years so that it will set students up with the tools they need to be successful in creating their own works of art. In addition to teaching art, I am a professional painter and I use these same tools to create my art. My approach to teaching is hands-on, exploratory, and creative. I like to begin by demonstrating the basic skills, having students demonstrate the basic skills, and then allowing them to apply those skills to a creative project. I meet students where they're at and my goal is to grow their skills and their confidence so they feel empowered to tackle their own projects outside of class. 

Learners are encouraged to take risks, ask questions, and also to use their mistakes to create new techniques. This is a growth-oriented class, and exploration through process is the main goal. It's the journey that's important, not the destination. Students will learn lots of new techniques that they can add to their "artist toolbox." Once they have these techniques, they can use them to explore projects on their own.
