Teaching Philosophy

“By encouraging individual ambitions and open minds to accept new challenges, I aspire to push the students further to explore and expand their originality. As students grow in curiosity, I want to provide opportunities for the students to indulge in the exciting ideas, materials, and techniques of art.”
