Kristen teaches her students confidence in their creative endeavors. Through the learning framework Studio Habits of Mind, Kristen aims to integrate all studies into art and welcome students as colleagues of the art world.
"I care about children making art they are proud of and that they enjoy their learning experience. My class earns skills that lead to creative, observant, and thoughtful adults. I love the delight a child has when holding up a creation of their own making and know why it's fabulous. The great thing about being a classroom art teacher is hosting this adventure in the student's studio space. With me, students are exploring materials, investing in projects, expressing oneself, collaboration, risk-taking,... what's not to love?"
