As an arts educator, I help people of all ages and abilities to discover the joys of weaving. Using readily available, inexpensive materials and equipment, I teach people how to create weavings, from large collaborative tapestries to small personal weavings. I have found that these art experiences provide people with a forum for building self-esteem, an awareness of their own lives and of their interconnectedness to our planet.
I offer four different types of programs. Please read the following to see which is best for you.
Artist-in-Residence: a multiple-day program in a school or institution creating a final project and designed in collaboration with teachers and staff.
Teacher Training: a one-time or series of sessions that teach successful methods of using weaving projects and other creative expressions that link art with curriculum as well as areas of school culture such as self-esteem, tolerance and accessibility.
Workshops: a one-time or series of sessions that focuses on a specific technique or project. This can be in a school or institutional setting or in my studio as a private coaching session for technical weaving projects.
Community Art: an event for groups of individuals that share a common environment, a common goal or an event and who want to create a work of art as a community.
Arts in Health Care: a positive art experience for patients, staff and/or healthcare communities provided at bedside, in clinics, outpatient areas, common areas or waiting rooms.
