My Body, My Vessel
Teaching art should be a transformation of any classroom into a place where an emotional release facilitates identification with self and fosters creativity. As an art teacher I make abstract ideas concrete by using examples, demonstrating procedures, and encouraging communication. Recognizing process rather than levels of ability and valuing all kinds of skills will promote self-esteem. As a teacher I must have knowledge of the subject, teacher resources, my students, my students leaning, and what motivates my students. Also as a teacher I must be a critical thinker, have a good problem solving skills, have self-knowledge, and be a self-regulated learner.
Artist Statement: My main passion is sculpture. My work is in constant evolution. With life comes change, my art reflects the changes in my life and the world around me. I seek truth in my artwork, the truth of who aim and what is in my heart. My work is physiological extension of myself. am I trying to se myself and understand the world around me and who I am.
I sculpt to communicate my emotions. My sculptures show my internal conflict with things in my life.
My inner strength is the reason I can sculpt and share with the viewer. Art is a voice of life that is driven on feelings and intellect. I transform my inner voice into a tangible piece of art, in hopes that the viewer will hear me. My sculptures are my physiognomy.
