Hi, my name is Linus Parr and this website is about my journey as an artist and art educator. A goal of mine is to share my love for Art both the making of it and teaching it. How it expands our Minds and helps to reach our Atman (According to Hinduism: the essence of breath). For me it's all about art, more art and how it connects to all of us and I feel its not the destination but how we get there. So, feel free to follow along, get on board or just support those who are taking the same journey. Most of all thank you for visiting my website and please email me to get in touch for anything that has peak your interest or better yet how one of my projects can be tweak in a beautiful way. Please don't hesitate to download anyone of my lessons plans classroom management tools or look through the professional resources I feel are important to our industry.

My artistic education consists of two areas: Art Direction and Visual Communications. This approach has provided the opportunity to learned both fine art as well as the digital side of art. My love for art and designing provides me the opportunity to explore new mediums or medias and ones I haven't used in a while bringing returned joy to me. Seeing how this type of process can open my eyes adds to my everyday work as an Art Director and Art Teacher. Art Direction allows me to bring a different aspect to the classroom because I use every form of art needed to express the idea and concept through not only myself but my students as well. The two major parts of my teaching are: Discipline Based Art Education and The Design Thinking Skills Process. Its these two methods that allow my students to realize the why's and how's of art and what we create as artist. The process of art is an exploration from beginning to end, turning mistakes into newfound opportunities helping us understand’ “It’s not just the making of art but, how we got there.” Of course I have a love and zest for life, everything it has to offer, and a belief that this outlook makes it easier to include life experiences into my daily lessons. For these reasons and many more I do my best to be part of everyday and allow that to flow into the other areas enhancing those around me. Being an artist is a gift and one that I enjoy giving back.
