In addition to traditional art classes, he also enjoys science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM), social-emotional learning, and other types of interdisciplinary work.
Joshua is also a professional artist. His media of choice include painting, drawing, and woodworking. He is always trying to find ways to make connections between the professional art world and the academic world for his students. Joshua looks for events and collaborations that elevate his students’ ideas.
