In my studio and inside my classroom, art making is examined both as language and as craft. The visual language addresses the use of cultural signifiers, symbols and metaphors in the content and structure of the image. My students are not only taught to make images but also to read images in order to develop their visual literacy. They are taught to examine the social, cultural and historical contexts within their work. This understanding enables the expression of meaningful communication, both personal and shared. It is my goal to foster an understanding of the world through the study of art, in order to engage with the world in a meaningful way.
