Why TSAS?: Because I wanted a school where I was free to develop my own curriculum that was free from the constraints of traditional schools, and focused on encouraging the growth of students in their creative life. This school values the benefits of an all-around education in which art is seen as an essential tool for the development of both the student’s critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.
Interesting Fact: In his 87th year, Michelangelo inscribed on a sketch the words ‘Ancora Imparo’– Italian for ‘I am still learning’. It’s a reminder that learning is a life-long pursuit, and we’re never truly finished. I have also taught at the Philbrook Museum of Art for the last 10 years, and live with two dogs, a cat who thinks he’s a dog, Gus, and my husband, Aaron.
