As much as I love working with young children in the arts, there's nothing like teaching an Upper School student. Teenagers have a different perspective on art, positive or negative, and there's always a discussion to be had. Art is all around us and at times we find ourselves overlooking it. You can see it in the design of a logo, the shape of a large bowl and the phone that you carry around ALL day long! Not everything is good, but it's worth looking, thinking and analyzing. Perhaps you think, "I could have done that," but the thing is, you didn't and you haven't...but you can try!
I am excited to begin my second year at Bullis. Last year I taught in the Upper School (Into to Art, Visual Arts II, Advanced Studio Art, Ceramics, Art History, Sculpture), led Open Studio and co-sponsored the National Art Honor Society. I only had a chance to meet some students. I look forward to meeting many more! Summer is the perfect time to recover from the marathon of the school year, and now it's time to begin again.
