Community Art & Teaching Projects.

What makes my community art and teaching projects stand out is the emphasis on learning and engaging the community.  For school, student and congregant projects, a beautiful piece of art is created by a group only after research, discussions and writings on the topic occur.  These pieces are also designed to be used in the future for learning purposes.  Because I often work with groups and the pieces are on public display, the art serves to build community.

Community art and teaching projects include:

  • Creating community art projects which enhance school curriculum
  • Designing hands-on museum exhibits
  • Artist in Residence
  • Teaching art classes
  • Art lectures
  • Art consultant for schools & community events
  • Drawing portraits to raise funds for a senior center
  • Designing stained glass windows for congregations
  • Designing sets for numerous hands-on charity events
  • Creating a school ceramics program
  • Writing & Receiving  grants to create and restore glass mosaics installations
