Welcome to my art teaching site!
I am an artist and an art educator, I have ten years experience teaching art in the after school program. I have worked at Holy Name School and Mission Dolores Academy, in San Francisco. I recently graduated with a MA in Art Education from The Academy of Art University, and I hold a BFA from Complutense University in Madrid, and a Pedagogical Adaptation Certificate (CAP) from University of Almeria, Spain.
Art creation inspires students to develop emotionally and intellectually, and I teach by scaffolding my students, guiding and encouraging them to experience their own artistic results, so they can grow and learn by creating meaning, by taking risks and creating their own experiences. I love the social interaction my students have when they are problem solving such as creating the composition for a still life drawing. I enjoy seeing these “creative spark” moments when they are learning about aesthetics and they are making their own decisions when creating.
