Adjunct Professor, Art Foundations and Art History
Georgia Mueller earned her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MA from University of Central Missouri. She has been a painter most of her life and has work in several private collections. She enjoys the classroom and feels teaching is a good fit with her artistic pursuits.
The process of tapping into the nebulous zone that only occurs when I am actively engaged in seeing, filtering, reacting and drawing, is a continuous flow. The fragility of this equilibrium is amazing. Tapping into this state of mind results in a moment of purity. I am in a state of connection with my painting and the real world. A lightning rod between the two, I make the circuit complete.
Philosophy of Teaching
I think it is very important to give the students an opportunity to see original art. In my view there is nothing like the primary source. I feel the real function of this class is to give students an opportunity to find themselves face to face with art that has the possibility to change their lives. We venture out and discover a world many of them were not aware existed. If I can somehow ignite a spark in them that opens this world, they will be forever changed. And expanding your students' world view is always a goal in teaching.
