I’ve been a Teaching Artist for over 14 years…in schools, community organizations, after school programs, museums… In the late fall of 2015 I was a Teaching Artist at Bobtown Elementary School.
I was able to intensely work with the students in the 11 days we worked together. Instead of bringing in one-off activities that can often be the extent of Teaching Artist experiences, I brought in related, cohesive lessons that relate to my own professional artwork.
So, we focused on Motifs, Tessellations/Repeat Designs, Japanese Shibori Fabric Dyeing and Sewing. See some of our process below!
