Sweeping out the cobwebs for summer.

It has been a busy year.  Last fall, I began an undertaking that I have long thought about starting – teacher certification.  I have been an artist/educator for more than 20 years, but I haven’t had the piece of paper that says so.  So, last fall I enrolled in the Syracuse University Master of Science: Art Education program.  I am pursuing the degree full time, while also keeping my studio somewhat open, teaching in six area preschools, running a Girl Scout troop, being a parent of two kids, playing with a punk band, volunteering in my community, and most importantly trying to find time to take a nap.   It has been demanding to say the least.  But, I am fully engaged in the theory and the practice of art education and its multi-faceted benefits.  Unfortunately, during this time, I have had to really scale back abcdexperiment’s offerings, even while interest seems to be spreading.  When and if I get a full time teaching position, I hope to keep my studio+lab open for experimentation.

In the meantime, I will be offering three weeks of summer camps during August.  (See flyer below.)  I look forward to these camps as not only an opportunity for me to play and have fun with kids, but as a way to put my art-teaching philosophy to the test.  What I try to offer is unique engagement in creative play.  We build skills – sure, but more importantly, we inquire.

I hope some curious kids will join me this summer to play and inquire!

Thanks for the continued interest and support!
