Welcome! The art room is a place where exploration, problem solving, and collaboration are embraced. In order to be successful, students must be willing to take risks, work hard, and be creative without hesitation. I'm am thrilled to be working with the talented students of Holland High School. Please use this website to check out what the students are working on or to view some of the resources that I have linked. Thank you for visiting!Incase you're interested:I am an artist and educator. My artistic background is heavily rooted in photography (both fine art and commercial) but you can also find me frequently drawing, printing, painting, sculpting, etc, etc. I enjoy it all!
As an educator, my mission is to promote creativity and personal expression while also encouraging the self discipline necessary to meet goals and deadlines. Students are expected to create their best work and participate in daily class activities whether that means creating art or holding discussions and critiquing. The studio/classroom atmosphere is relaxed, productive and positive. For information on individual classes, see the links for projects and materials.
I love what I teach and I believe it is so important for students to know that I absolutely believe there are jobs available for art students who are enthusiastic, flexible and willing to keep learning. So keep at it!
Thanks for visiting! Check back often.
