About Lizbeth Dune

When I began teaching 18 years ago I taught second grade. I was an Alternative Certification teacher and had no idea what I was doing. I had 48 hours before my first class of 24 arrived. My solution was to find out what was required of second graders. I then began writing Thematic Units and teaching the student as if I was teaching my own children. By the end of the third year the other two teachers were using my units.

I am not telling you this to brag--only to let you know that I have been interested in Project Based learning for a long time. In 2010 I completed a course taught at The Lincoln Center-Institute for the Arts in Education, integrating art into the other curriculum. Unfortunately, in the public high School setting this does not work well with testing-based curricula. During my tenure at St. Mark's Episcopal school, together with one of the local art galleries, I created a student art show that grew over the three years. It included student from various walks of life, not just our students. I was gratified to have four of my students accepted at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. My high school students have participated in VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event): they have won scholarships; have been asked to participate as guest artist in the Parallel Universe: Art and Quantum Physics show at Winter Street Studios; and some have continued to study at the Art Institute. As a working artist, I believe it is extremely important to be able to speak to my students from experience. I have also been a mentor teacher for new and struggling art teachers.

After retiring from the public school sector, I have devoted my time to teaching art through the Children's Prison Art Project and Art Bridge Houston. The Children's Prison Art Project is a therapeutic program that is dedicated to bringing the visual and theater arts to young people who have been incarcerated for one reason or another. Art Bridge Houston is a therapeutic program dedicated to bringing the visual arts to homeless children. I currently teach classes at Covenant House and at Harris County Psych Center.
