Teaching Artist: Kristin Ann Melin
"When students look at art honestly and subjectively, they have the opportunity to make discoveries that are personal.
"When students explore art processes and materials, they build their own system of understanding cause and effect.
"When students complete a work of art, they have created something that has a unique place in the world.
"When I teach, my goal is to create an environment where
students learn to trust their own observations, create their own
solutions, and understand their power as artists and humans."
