"When I look at a work of art, I try to plunge into it. I like to experience the noise, the color, and the atmosphere of the scene–its immediate effects. But I also try to understand the work in its historical context. Art comes to life for me this way.
My goal for teaching is to encourage visitors of all ages and backgrounds to engage deeply with works of art, to make it come to life for them, too. Working with small groups and families is the best way to do this. Our unique activity-based programs focus on close looking, which makes learning a fun, interactive experience. I’m constantly delighted by the intuitive insights children have for creative expression. Adults can learn from them; we just need to take the time to patiently listen."
