Artist Tremain Smith completed the UArts Teaching Artist Certificate program in 2011. Although Smith had been conducting art workshops for years, she wanted to teach more and with greater skill. “My interactions with my students deepened because of the understanding I now have of their developmental processes,” she said.
Complimenting her professional success as a working artist, Smith wanted to promote artistic expression as a means to move and empower people of all generations and backgrounds. She believes the Teaching Artist Certificate program assisted her in attaining that goal. “It has renewed my excitement about education in general and given me the belief that all education leads to something new and expansive.”
