I have received my Bachelor's in Art & Design from the University of Chicago and a Masters in Teaching from Dominican University. Traditionally, I teach courses in Digital Photography, Graphic Design, and Introduction to Art, including our Autism classes. I also have experience in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, computer art, and more.
In my classes, students explore a variety of media, topics, and ideas to develop their artwork. If a student does not feel like he/she has performed to ability, a request to "retake" is given. The student initiates the conversation, works into the artwork CUA (Common Unit Assessment), and returns it to me by an agreed-upon date.
