Trained as an Elementary Art Education teacher, I have experience working in schools, aftercare programs and informal spaces with young people. I've taught the fundamentals of the visual arts in settings across the East Coast and as far as Colombo, Sri Lanka. In my methods of teaching I value collaboration, artistic critiques and interdisciplinary curriculum. Discovering how to pair my students interests and passions with handmade craft has been a joy for many years. I've found that when children engage in the exploration of tactile materials it reaps freedom, self-discovery and healing.
Below are a sampling of projects that I've made with young students in recent years.
