. Jorge Perez-Rubio - Art in Education - Painting and Drawing - Artist and Art Teacher - Pintor y Maestro de Arte


"All Teachers are Artists, but not all Artists can Teach."

<<< - Pintor y profesor de arte que promociono el Arte en la Escuela donde la gente aprendía a traves de la interpretacion de imagenes, simbolos y signos, incluido el idioma. Como un maestro de aula con experiencia de Pre-K a 12º grado en escuelas e instituciones privadas progresivas e independientes, creia necesario promover la alfabetizacion visual y fomentar el dialogo hacia una mejor comprensión del mundo que nos rodea mediante la inclusion de las Artes en la Educacion. Las herramientas que utilizan los artistas y los profesores de arte son las mismas: Los elementos del arte y los principios del disenho. De esta manera, pintar es una manera de escribir; y el Arte Visual es un idioma. Si se puede aprender a leer y a escribir, tambien se puede pintar y dibujar.. - >>>

The tools that artists and art teachers use are the same: the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design. In this way, Painting is a Language; and Drawing, is like Writing. - >>>
