I want to give the children that I teach the most limitless and open first exposure to art that I can. I’ve spent many happy hours finger painting, exploring art materials, and digging in clay with my students. As a teacher, and as an artist, I’ve been so inspired by the young children I’ve worked with who cover themselves, the walls, and every other imaginable surface in paint. Kids are the most inspiring people to be around, and they are the best artists that I could ever hope to meet.
