Art Coordinator & Instructor

Reading Aread Community College

I have worked at RACC for nine years as an Adjunct Instructor of arts classes.  I am currently serving as Interim Art Coordinator and full-time instructor of introduction and advanced studio and art history, both on campus and online. 

RACC is decorated with a rich and colorful student body from which I obtain much energy, as my students enlighten and inspire me.  I have experience working with various age groups, backgrounds and levels of artist.  I enjoy the strong spirit of community that is generated at RACC, which continues to feed my aspirations as mentor.   I feel as a teaching artist,  I am both student and steward, and believe it is my duty to bring the joy I receive from making art to my students.  Art is  closely linked to almost everything that we say we want of our lives and from our schools: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity.

Art is an all-encompassing discipline, composed of aspects of mathematics, color theory, science, history and communication.   Art is the icing on the cake of life and celebrates our depth and humanness.  Art causes us to stop and smell the roses and to reconsider how and what we 'see'.
