Tanea's teaching style:

Tanea emphasizes imagination and giving students the freedom to explore their individual identity in their art. She remains open to all of her students' ideas which gives them some influence over which direction the class will take.

Tanea loves EAC because . . .

I enjoy the curiosity that comes from the young students as they enter the building. The physical construction of the building isn't a traditional classroom but provides the younger students a unique opportunity to experience education in a different environment.
