Teaching Statement: My goal is to inspire curiosity about the works we study, the cultures they come from, and their relevance to the world we live in today. I want my students to appreciate and understand how art is made as well as the meaning it conveys. It matters to me that students leave my classroom aware that art is determined by more than the imagination of the artist -- therefore discussion of history, cultural context, and the evolution of artistic forms is central to my teaching.
