TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught art at the middle & high school level since 2001 and have learned a great deal from my students and from other teachers. In my teaching I use some recycled projects, but I create most of the lessons for my class. I recently had trouble finding photo reference to show my students, so I thought I might start collecting my photos and project ideas here so that other Art teachers (and non-art teachers) can benefit. Additionally, I want to collect lessons that other teachers use and create a forum for Art Idea Exchanges. See more ideas and what is going on in my classroom on my blog: http://mswelchsartclass.blogspot.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I ask my students a lot of questions. I make a lot of suggestions I get them to create and serve as their guide. My teaching style and Philosophy has not changed much. Read papers I wrote during my teacher prep program. www.kathewelch.org/art_papers.html I welcome feedback on my work and I would be happy to write an arts based lesson plan for you.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Kathe grew up in California's Central Valley. From an early age she could be found drawing things she saw in her neighborhood and things she imagined might exist. She wrote stories to accompany her drawings and created little books for her family. Among her earliest commissions were drawings of naked girls for her male classmates in exchange for candy. After high school Kathe attended art school in Seattle, receiving a degree in commercial art. While there her artistic aesthetic turned toward the fine arts and she felt she needed to further her art education. Back in California, Kathe pursued a university degree and a teaching credential. She is now in her third year teaching art at the middle school level. Kathe's approach to art has always involved experimentation and her inventive and inquisitive nature. She favors the stark black and white of a woodblock or a pen and ink drawing to express her ideas, though she uses all media to accomplish her artistic goals. Kathe also enjoys writing, but she expects her images to tell a story better than she could with words. She also expects the viewer to bring their own story to each viewing; so she wants to leave a lot open to interpretation. Kathe is currently is working on several wood cut projects and paintings and is illustrating a story about the fear of falling off the edge of the bed. http://instagram.com/kathewelch
