Exploring the contribution of diverse artists to the world community opens students beliefs and encourages pride in being an artist. Art should be studied and made for both its expressive power and its possible social meaning. Art is a language of thought which must be accessible to all students, not just the talented or well-connected few. It is essential for teachers and artists to work together to explore their own stories and dislodge the ideologies that sustain the practice of exclusion and marginalization. This can be achieved through critical multicultural art education. Teaching Non-Western art, European art, and Contemporary art is important because, in some way, it is part of everyone's story and survival. One story is needed to balance the other. I teach experimentation to help students learn and build confidence. I have over 6 years of teaching experience in higher education and secondary school.
