Teaching Philosophy

As an educator, Sara Kaltwasser has a sincere passion for working with young people, having had experience working with individuals of all ages in academy-centered settings as well as working within and supporting less traditional educational spaces.


With special attention focused on developing and implementing curriculum for children and teens, Sara Kaltwasser values an approach in the classroom that revels in student’s ideas and interests; with emphasis placed on experimentation, collaboration, investigation, and active creative research by participants. Sara’s teaching practice fosters spaces of learning that encourage dialogue about concepts, especially as it relates to what art is and what role it plays in one’s daily life. As part of her teaching practice, value is placed on play and multiple intelligences.
