About Katharina

My interest in teaching art comes from my desire to share what I know and love as it has permeated my life. I work part time in Art Restoration, and so I practice regularly the skills of using color and the techniques of painting and drawing. I have exhibited in group shows in New Jersey.

My methods are strongly based in guiding students. In sharing the skills and encouraging the student to create their image. No matter the age of the student, their creativity and ability to think critically is essential. Art involved many skills in many content areas, art techniques, science, math skills, oral skills in vocabulary and communicating clearly about ideas with others. Most of all, the student needs a sense of personal relevance and connection in the learning in the arts.

For me, Art History is the main avenue we come to understand and learn about cultures and history. Art history and the practice of art go hand in hand. In the area of Art History, I emphasize the cultural and historical context of the material, Art was and is not created in a void. It is vital to understand the sense of place and meaning of the Art. In AP Art History classes, there is a lot of rote learning. But it can be understood more deeply so that the student will retain and recall the material in a personally useful way. At younger levels, art goes hand in hand with the social studies and language arts classes. At the college level, the writing skills and more detailed cultural contexts are emphasized.
