Teaching Philosophy: Ingrid Erickson
Visual art is a powerful tool for communication and self-expression. It is a catalyst for change at both individual and societal levels. Art teaches perseverance, flexibility, and creative problem-solving.
I believe that art is for everyone: Learning to engage in the creative process develops critical thinking, spatial reasoning, self-discovery, and joy in life-long learning.
I believe in individually-tailored instruction to accommodate different learning styles. I challenge my students to hone their skills, and guide them in the discovery of their own individual artistic voices.
