2015 St. Louis ArtWorks: Pocket Park – Art Instructor
Students learned the basic principles and artistic skills involved in landscape architecture and public art by conceptualizing and designing a pocket park for the city of Padedale, MO. In addition to artistic skills students also learned valuable professional skills such as public speaking and professional conduct while presenting their designs to the their client the Great Rivers Greenway. Construction of the finished park design will hopefully begin in 2018.
2015 Three Dimensional Design – Teaching Assistant
Students learned the fundamentals of three dimensional design as well as basic tool use and construction techniques.
2014 Art Practices: Public Practice – Teaching Assistant
Students designed and presented concepts for public art to the University City Arts and Letter Commission, as part of the 29th Annual University City Sculpture Series. The Arts and Letters Commission then awarded four students a commission to realize their project in full scale. During the class students learned how art’s function changes when presented in the public realm and what role the artist plays when engaging with the community. The following are the finished art commissions.
