Welcome to Mr. Hansen's Homepage
 

Welcome to Mr. Hansen's Page!  I'm very excited to be teaching at Anwatin!

I have a B.A. from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and a Masters of Art Education from the University of Minnesota.   When not teaching, I am a professional painter, theater designer, and performance artist.

My teaching philosophy centers on my belief that every person can engage with art in a meaningful way.  Each student has the ability to learn new skills and grow their knowledge of art history, aesthetics, art-making, and reflection.  As students learn about how artists think to solve problems, they will understand how art is an essential part of every day life. Art shapes how we understand the world.  Every object that humans have ever created or will create was designed.  Understanding the design process can be a powerful way for students to understand the world around them.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
