“The landscape of any given class is defined by the parameters set forth by both the students and the facilitator. A teacher must address this continuum in order to satisfy his or her responsibilities to the class as a whole. Students should absorb, through a rigorous and invigorating experience that will serve them in future classes, other subjects, and post-academic life.”
Eric Moore is on the Art Education faculty at Montserrat. His goal is to teach people a passion to learn and to foster a true love for the creative process. He is a traditionalist in terms that he starts from the basics and builds from there. Eric believes art is something that gives form to the human spirit. He feels students want a teacher who creates an active, passionate learning environment and a person who cares about them. These elements define his teaching and his philosophy of teaching. Eric has been teaching visual art for nearly 18 years and is active in his own art making as well. His art work has shown in New York, Maine, and Massachusetts. He lives in Rye, NH and has three children. He holds a BFA in Painting and Art Education from Montserrat and an M.Ed, Arts in Education, Curriculum and Instruction, Lesley University, 2005.
