VATA Conference, Oct 2015

In October 2015, I was invited to teach a Rangoli workshop at the Annual Fall Conference for the Vermont Art Teachers Association, ‘Imagination Encircles The World’.
The conference was attended by over 75 art teachers from all over the state and was hosted by the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne VT. It was a real joy and a day filled with gratitude.

Throughout my middle and high school experience, it was my art teacher that developed and nurtured my passion for the arts through her patience, motivation and creativity. She was instrumental in my choice of career as a visual/ teaching artist; and so I thank you Barbara Larlham, and thank you Vermont art teachers, for all the creativity, confidence and innovative thinking you inspire.

Rangoli Residency at Georgia Elementary School, VT

In January 2015, I had the opportunity to work with the students of Georgia Elementary School as artist-in-residence. The 2nd through to 4th graders made some incredible work and we began by studying ephemeral art around the world. Over the course of 4 days, the students prepared their materials, created their own designs and participated in a group Rangoli. We also experienced being mindful and explored some mindful doodling. Tiles created during the residency will be exhibited at the Vermont Statehouse in March for Youth Art Month.
