To Teach Or Not To Teach

There is a fine line between telling a student what to do and completely squashing a student’s discovery process.

Think about that.

I am aware of that statement when I teach a textile art class or a quilt class. I want to guide the students but never hinder them from exploring.

I want to teach them but never disturb their own creative process.

I am looking forward to teaching at Branksome Hall, art department, again this school year. They have hired me to do classes with the grade 10's and grade 8's.
