Art Education

My practice as an educator is directly tied to my practice as an artist and a designer. All of which are born out of a desire to communicate, challenge, uplift, and build long-lasting, meaningful relationships with people. 

 

During a nearly decade-long career in museums and art spaces I have taught art classes, organized public programs, and lead gallery walks for audiences of all ages and as young as five years old.
