I am a teacher and artist, working with the hope that art can help us re-imagine, enchant, and change the world.  I have done this work since 1999 at School of the Poetic City, The Odyssey School, and Metropolitan State University of Denver.

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
