Susan Bush - Visual Art

​                      PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT 

As an Art Educator, I will continue to conduct myself with a positive attitude as a motivated leader in my field. I will recognize the whole person in each one of my students, motivate them to explore and enjoy the ever-changing world around them through Art, while through innovative approaches introducing the technical and the academic aspects of the subject matter. My perfect world is a safe and comfortable place; an environment where each individual is self-motivated and uses their creativity to develop their vision, as their journey for knowledge is not only successful, but also most positive and even more enjoyable.
