It is my belief that art is a vital component of any functioning and thriving society. It is a necessary method of communication and provides a universal language that can unite us all. A multicultural art education provides children an opportunity to express themselves creatively and develop their own visual literacy by studying art production and art history from around the globe. My role as a teacher is to coach and encourage students to become lifelong learners. Our classroom will be a culture of respect where each individual has value and we all learn to work and communicate effectively and how to be responsible for our own actions. A safe, caring, and creative environment will provide each student the ability to grown into a lifelong learner and gain creative thinking and problem solving skills to use the rest of their life.
