Donna Thompson is a teaching artist who believes that art grows exponentially both as a teacher and an artist. Since 1990, she has been an instructor in Art Education at the School of Art and Design teaching the process, history, language and critical analysis of art. She considers the solution for the Twenty-First Century problems lie in the independent thinkers and creative problem solvers, who are sensitive to their environment and who are concerned for others. Her philosophy is that the arts are the vehicles for fine tuning our sense of aesthetics.
