Welcome to my Classical Christian Art Education Classroom Blog

I believe creative thinking (and memory) are based on associations:

   “Developing creativity is MORE than teaching creative skills, it is finding solutions to new problems by reevaluating WHAT IS KNOWN into ‘illogical’ or divergent arenas and envisioning formerly unknown relationships among different domains of experience.”  CREATIVITY by Cropley 

 I believe a classical education is the best way to have a solid foundation of “what is known“. This enables students to become successful 21st century problem solvers! .

Tigers

   Art based on Rich’s poem: Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers, by a former AP student, Faith Wada, in 2014

 For the last 19 years I have had the privilege of helping students express themselves visually.  Thankfully, I get to wake up every morning and share my passion with young people.  

Visual art is a form of worship: not for our glory, but for HIS!
