Brief Artist/Educator Statement
April 4, 2016
With this sculpture/puppet I am continuing to demonstrate my learning this term in both classes, as well as my journey of understanding my teaching practice.I wanted to do something that was true to me, and something that showed how I was feeling and could act as a metaphor for what I was learning. I also thought this would be good as a project/ ‘Friday Problem’ which I am using in my field study. It connects really well to everything I have done so far and can see my next project as a blend of the other two. I have kept track of the progress of building the puppet, as I want to use it also in my class as a project.
I think this puppet demonstrates how I have started to re think how I am teaching. I am being pulled in different directions by what I am trying in my field study and the conversations I am having in class.
