I like long walks through museums, cable knit sweaters, and hot tea.
On a more serious note, Welcome to Art, Y'all!
My philosophy for teaching can be summed up by this quote from Alber Einstein: "Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid." What I believe is that every student has artistic and creative abilities, through discovery of different media and explorations in technique we are able to tap those intrinsic abilities. Creativity is like a volatile substance, add a catalyst and the results can be explosive.
