I use high-quality light study portraits to sharpen students' observation skills and boost their confidence. These exercises improve their understanding of light and shadow, key in art, and help them see tangible progress in their abilities, enhancing their self-assurance as artists.
The printing process, particularly etching and reduction lino printing, is accessible to students of all ability levels. These techniques offer a hands-on experience that caters to diverse skill sets, encouraging creativity and technical learning in an inclusive environment.
Copying from master artists is key in teaching students transferable skills and critical analysis. This approach deepens their understanding of diverse styles and techniques, essential for their artistic growth.
I organized a contest for students to design futurist cities or surreal objects, promoting ownership and inquiry-based learning. This contest challenged students to creatively think and research, blending their artistic skills with imaginative concepts. It encouraged them to explore and express unique ideas, fostering a deeper engagement with art and critical thinking.
