I am the art teacher at Baker Demonstration School. I run a choice-based art studio program based on the TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) pedagogy. Students are artists and the art room is their studio. Students are taught to use the tools and materials of the art studio and over time, have access to drawing, collage, painting, fiber, printmaking and 3-D centers. Every work of art is authentic student art as students are creating art about things that interest and inspire them. I am extremely lucky to do what I do and everyday my students amaze and inspire me.
