The emPOWERment Project continues! This time I will work with alumni and current women in the POWER House for an entire year! Our goal is to create collaborative artwork that will be displayed in the POWER House, sold to the community, and taken home by the women when they graduate the program.
Previous Artist Residency Projects can be found below, on my Blog

Scott Miller, Avonworth Primary Center:
I really appreciated Amber’s personalized approach and willingness to support our youngest learners at Avonworth Primary Center. The Artist in Residency Program provided a collaborate framework to seamlessly embed curriculum components and art into a dynamic experience for our first graders. Amber’s enthusiasm, energy, and creativity provided an amazing experience for all of us at APC!
Maureen Frew, Maker Education Specialist, Avonworth Primary Center:
It is my pleasure to write this testimonial on behalf of Amber Coppings – Teaching Artist – Artist Residency Program. Ms. Coppings completed a bat/spider unit with 60 of our first grade students this past October, 2016. It was an incredible experience for the students, teachers and parents.
Ms. Coppings introduced students to sketching, drawing, patterns, tessellations, yarn structures and fabric construction. Students ending this experience by hosting a family night where they proudly displayed their created works. This learning experience was one that is still talked about with our students.
The learning continues with the skills that Ms. Coppings presented to our students and staff. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Ms. Coppings to work in a school district and at Avonworth we look forward to future collaborations with her.
