I strongly believe that everyone is creative in some way, and that creativity needs to be encouraged and supported. This begins in elementary school.  My program of study at UGA led to an interest in fostering creativity and awareness in my students through building a positive classroom environment and an open art curriculum.  Through playful experimentation with materials, I hope to help my students begin to develop their own artistic voices, see new possibilities, and be more aware of their own art-making processes — to become independent, creative thinkers and artists.
