Artist Residencies I Offer:
I am a Teaching Artist which means I go into public and private schools and work along-side the classroom teacher, bringing a visual arts component to the subject matter being taught.
Artist residencies range from 1 week to several months at schools, community centers, at-risk facilities, senior citizen centers, and hospitals.
Please contact me to schedule an appointment to see my portfolio. I specialize in hand-building in clay, mixed media collage, murals, and more! I am happy to travel to your location to meet with you and your staff.
In addition to EcoScapes, the mural and waterfall project depicted on my Home page, I offer visual art residencies in science, math, social studies, literary skills, and student retention. All of my residencies meet state and national curriculum standards.
Here are a few examples of my most popular residencies (which can be combined or modified, depending on your needs).

Learn how tocrecycle, re-purpose, and be eco-friendly while creating small collages that can be traded internationally, school to school, or person to person. In schools: ATCs can be adapted for almost any subject area - talk to me about your upcoming lessons.
