ART FREES THE HUMAN MIND,
SPIRIT AND SOUL!
After a long hiatus dealing with the curve balls that life threw at me, I'm back! I hope I can keep up writing on this blog as I did before. So many things have happened since I last posted, but I will just give you a briefing.
I have kept working in my art and enjoying seeing it evolve as I go through my artistic journey and research pursuits. I also continue to exhibit my work. You can learn all about it in my website and in both my Instagram accounts here and here. You will see that I have also been interviewed for my work, gotten awards, invited to present at a few lectures --that I will talk about in following posts, as well as to jury exhibitions.
On the other hand, I have also continued teaching, now in private schools since 2015. In the school I am in now since 2017, I am the Director of Galleries as well. For which I not only get to maintain the students' galleries, but also bring artists guests to showcase their artworks in the other three beautiful galleries we have. I will write about some of the exhibitions I have curated in future posts too.
In my current job I teach Studio Art Foundation to middle school students, as well as Drawing, Painting, Studio Art, and 3D Design classes to Upper School students. In the Spring of 2018, I also started an Afternoon program for Portfolio Development to prepare my Art concentration students to get ready to apply to art colleges with successful results.
Here are a few Valentine cards I got this year from some of my students. Precious gestures that make all I do so worth it! *
Last but not least, I have just finished my Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts from Lesley University College of Art and Design. Hence my absence from this platform until now.
