2018: Collaboration with the new orleans museum of art

As a part of Newman’s annual collaborative exhibition with the New Orleans Museum of Art, Pre-Kindergarten and Green Trees (3 & 4 years old) artists created an installation using ceramic pinch pots and mirrors. The clay pots were the result of a six week long study in clay (Pre-K) and the mirrors were the product of a project where children traced the reflections of natural materials (Green Trees).

2018: Pre-K fairy project

During this six week long project, Pre-K artists designed and built a village for fairies using loose parts. The children also created a series of fairy drawings with corresponding narratives.

Spring 2013

In the Spring of 2013, during part of my time as the Visiting Artist Intern with the University of Georgia's Study Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy, I worked with the Art Education class in the local Elementary School. Together with a friend of the program, I taught a First Grade Art Class each week. The students made ceramic puppets that visually represented an emotion of their choice. All of the art work created during the semester was exhibited in a student show in April at the Elementary School for family and friends.
