As an art teacher, I believe that Art Education is an essential component in the development of every student. All children should gain an understanding of what art is. The study of art includes the practice of art making, the history of art, aesthetics, and hopefully a development of art appreciation. Art making is a visceral experience and an innate means of creative expression and communication. I am sure that throughout this school year your child and I will be on a creative adventure, full of learning and inventing.
Regardless, if my students choose to become an artist or not, I want them all to be creative and knowledgeable in the subject. I would like to encourage students’ growth of character, morality, and civic responsibility, as well as have students strive to become contributing members of their community and society at large.
