Approach to Teaching:
In teaching, I seek to foster an open-minded learning environment where strong art-making practices intersect with critical discourse. My intention is to provide students with a solid foundation to help them experiment and solve problems in their practice, to widen their creative approaches and to develop and deepen critical skills. I believe that a gathering of diverse opinions and different approaches to the creation of art helps create an atmosphere in which students are able to make informed aesthetic decisions about their work.
