Teaching Philosophy… Yikes!

I am staring at my screen trying to come up with a statement of Teaching Philosophy to use in a job application. It's a humbling endeavor to try to describe how I would teach art. Especially when we all know that art is impossible to teach. It's something you learn on your own through trial and error, and practice. It's an exercise in failure eventually leading to success. As I have watched my own practice evolve over the years, I am convinced that my main achievement is number of hours I have spent drawing.

I know I couldn't have gotten here without all the incredible professors I had throughout my education, but it's hard to pinpoint what exactly I learned. Still, I charge ahead and hopefully will come up with something…
