Several years ago as a graduate student at Bank Street College, I was asked to contribute an essay to a new book about museum education theorists and their implications in the museum and education fields. The book, 12 Museum Theorists at Play by Marian Howard, can be bought through the iTunes book store. All proceeds from sales go to a scholarship fund for Bank Street students.

Commissioned work in progress.
The August ArtLab students range in age from kindergarten to third grade. In conjunction with games and exploring the natural habitats, my students are incredibly interested in the sculptures dotting the grounds. Inevitably this led to creating our own sculptures focused on combining cardboard shapes with either glue, tape or cutting notches; using the colors and patterns of our Snake Tree sculpture neighbor as inspiration; and connecting natural and non-natural materials through weaving and object placement (inspired by New City Art’s pinecone weavings).
