Teaching Artist Post 3: See some of my students’ work
I’m giving you 5 days of Street Stops and Mountain Tops from my personal posts. As you may know, a few of my colleagues and I are traveling abroad to the villages of Thailand to teach various forms of art to the children. I am honored and excited to be one of the teaching artists alongside of breakdancer, Lue Finisher Thao.
Attached is a video of me coaching my students & their final work. Your students are an image of you, so mentor right.
