Art Teaching Statement

    By Sarah Nesbitt 

    For every class I teach, I want to make sure that students learn skills that they can use beyond the classroom. I used to work in communications and did some freelance work with photography, video, and graphic design, and worked with people in many other fields. I usually try to bring that into the classroom and show students the importance of what they create could impact others. That is usually why I hang up student work in the hallway, have students create posters for different programs and spaces around campus, and have students participate in art exhibitions or extracurriculars outside the classroom. It allows them to see that impact and take ownership and responsibility for what they create while building their portfolio, skills, and resume along the way.
