I’m a museum educator and teaching artist. I’ve taught Zines for 6 years, combining visual and language arts, design, media literacy, story-telling, and critical thinking. I also teach STEAM, using common objects & select artworks as the "in" to get kids applying STEM-thinking while making things. Data-art is another fun STEAM-based project. As a teaching artist, I want learning to be fun, centering students' curiosity as they become makers, problem-solvers, and change agents.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My ZINE workshops can focus on hands-on materials-based making, or use online digital design tools and spaces (works will be printed), or a mix of both. I provide inspiring examples of compelling and inventive uses of design and digital tools to explore ideas and tell stories. Zines combine language arts, visual arts, design, visual communication, media literacy, and citizenship.

STEAM workshops combine close-looking with making to engage students in measuring, ratios, scale, perspective, geometry, volume, while learning and doing all kinds of design projects. We can also practice close-looking to deconstruct how pieces are made—and then reinterpret them by centering our own stories in the pieces we make.

I use DATA ART for STEAM learning to tell human stories through design and data, and to look at how counting shows up on our lives and why it matters.

*Each workshop is adaptable for grade level and curricular connections, and I can provide rubrics for grading students works'.
