                        Students explore the importance of composition, color theory, concept, abstraction, and criticism through         
                        performance, digital and analog photographic processes, painting/drawing, and video. This is a cross-disciplinary
                        studio art Foundations course that emphasized how similar concerns and principles from other disciplines can be
                        applied to Image, alternative ways in which Image can function, and how to merge traditional and contemporary
                        modes of image-making.

2016            Co-Teaching with Audrey Shakespear: Structure | Fall | Ohio University
                        Structure students learn basic techniques of how to convert a 2D image into a 3D object, how to imply rhythm or
                        movement within a piece, and explore building as it can be applied to physical, conceptual, spatial, and contextual
                        sculpture.  Students learn these techniques through performance, vinyl and laser cutting technology, soft sculpture,
                        traditional drawing, hand building, and mold making.


Graduate Teaching Assistant + Online Facilitator

2016              Art & Hip Hop | assisting John Sabraw | Spring | Ohio University
                          Hip Hop culture has profoundly influenced art since the 1970s. Hip hop has given voice to new art forms and new
                          approaches to existing artistic practices. Its underlying concepts have been adapted worldwide into art unique to
                          diverse geographic and cultural locales. Art and Hip Hop will explore this phenomenon within the context of traditional  
                          and contemporary art, polyculturalism and multiculturalism, activism and politics, gender, and race.

                          cross-disciplinary studio art Foundations course emphasizing how similar concerns and principles can be applied to
                          a variety of forms, materials, and traditions.
