I like to co-create goals with my students and find ways to support them in maximizing their potential. Some students are more interested in personal expression, others in realism, and others in illustration. There is always a path forward.
I personally have a deep love painting and drawing. It has always been a source of calm and stability in my life, and I think creative people need those things. I also think that, more and more, the skills that human beings can best provide for their community and culture, are those that can not be automated or mechanized.
