Art Statement, December 9, 2015 As a community art instructor and fine artist with long-term watercolor and mixed media experience, I enjoy sharing my art skills and education with adult and senior adult communities. I have great respect for their wisdom and knowledge and I sincerely enjoy having individual and class conversations. I have grown as a community art teacher through the service of working with older adults. (Challenging group and individual feedback about my instruction delivery has proved to refine my written and verbal communication skills. I think this sentence is unnecessary.) I believe art making has to include the process of peer knowledge sharing, group conversation and critical discussion. Team-building skills can also produce profound tools for creating art that visually connects he work with communities. -Bryan Briscoe, artist and community art instructor
