From July 2018 to Aug 2020 I was in the process of completing my Masters in Art Education at the University of Victoria in Victoria B.C. Canada.
My project focus has been on the use of the creative process as a means to add a richness of understanding and insight into the general K-12 school curriculum. It is my belief that students who are exposed to the creative process as a way of researching and understanding curricular content have a greater chance of living meaningful and happy lives.
Through these past few years I have engaged in a number of projects to better understand the creative process in a general way as well as seeking to unravel how, as an artist, I use the creative process within my own practice.
The main projects that I have been focusing on have been:
The hopeful outcome of my research into the creative process is to be better equiped to assist my students to realize thier full potential through creative expression and understanding.
