CURRICULUM WRITING — The Visual Arts Curriculum that I've written for BPCS stresses observation drawing, art production and muscle memory development (fine motor skills, etc.), communication, global awareness, and thoughtful self analysis/reflection. STUDIO EXPERIENCE — Each one, teach two. I encourage all students to explore their unique vision and voice while looking out for others. Students who master concepts/processes quickly become Art or Studio Experts and are asked to teach others. All students keep a sketchbook/IB workbook to track thier learning and the development of their projects. BEYOND — Placing students' works of ART in public spaces is key to completing the artistic cycle. Despite our transient nature (in the last couple of years), I've found ways to engage broader audiences with the work of BPCS students. Extra responsibilities include: creating school graphics as well as initiating school-wide awareness events where visuals play a key role (World Water Day, Earth Day, etc.).
