I am an artist and teacher, with little distinction between the two.  At Metropolitan  State University of Denver, I teach art education. I also work with children at School of the Poetic City, my contemporary art camp. I make art as a way to think slowly about the world and to exchange ideas with others. 

My research includes:

  • contemporary art education with children
  • arts integration
  • social justice art practices with children
  • the democratic classroom
  • constructivist pedagogy
  • painting and painting theory
  • Reggio Emilia documentation
  • Expeditionary Learning art curriculum
  • arts assessment
  • Denver Public School WPA murals
