    Welcome to the CrossRoads art webpage! I am not sure what I love more: teaching, art, or CrossRoads! I am very excited to have the privilege to teach these students, and I look forward to getting to you and your student. 


    Art is a semester course designed to give students a well-rounded art education based on the four parts of Discipline-Based Art Education (in no specific order):

    1)   Art Production

    2)   Art History

    3)   Art Criticism/Analysis, and

    4)   Aesthetic Awareness.

    Not only do students need to learn how to create artwork, but it is equally important that they study a diverse range of artists from throughout history. When describing, analyzing, interpreting, and evaluating the work of others, an artist improves his/her/their personal artwork. The goal of this course is to broaden students’ understanding and appreciation of art media, art movements and artists in order to have a greater awareness of the world around them.
