Why TC Artworks
We Are a Classroom Community
Our studio spaces and the time we spend together are an extension of the larger community outside of our doors.
Our varied age groups and abilities are work together in the studio classroom. We strive for our students to learn how to both be leaders and how to follow and receive guidance and inspiration from others. We believe in fostering communities where everyone can learn from each other.
We Believe in Upward Learning
Students should have a variety of experiences that come easily as well as those that require more thought, time, and perseverance in order to grow. We nurture and guide students, offering support when they need our assistance, and also encourage independent thinking and problem-solving.
Our students are offered opportunities to explore new materials in interesting ways, a variety of 2D and 3D projects, and the art of other cultures. We encourage a positive, “can do” attitude and respect for self and for others every day. We “teach up” so that students can grow and build self-esteem from their accomplishments.
We Encourage Art for Self-Expression
We believe that art making is important for self-expression. Art is more than just materials, skills, and techniques. At TC Artworks, we believe as much in process as we do product. Through our projects, the environments we create, and the conversations we encourage, students also acquire an appreciation for the ideas and beliefs of a variety of other cultures and the power of their own ideas and choices.
When a student learns how to communicate about the works of others, they can fortify their decision-making skills, and learn about their own unique ideas and perspectives. There is no “right” or “wrong” art-making outcome at TC Artworks.
