I began teaching visuals arts in 1998 at the largest elementary school in Alabama. Since then, I have taught at an art centre in Samoa, a private school in Idaho, an international school in Ecuador, and currently I am teaching for an online school and researching strategies to teach art virtually. Needless to say, I have taught art in many different environments. One thing has remained a constant. Students love to create. Over the years my teaching has become less about asking students to make a pretty picture and more about asking them how, why and what makes them want to create.
