Work Experience

Teaching Artist, Museum of Modern Art

I am responsible for developing projects and providing multiple art workshops for 16 community based organizations throughout the boroughs. i serve the adults seeking their GEDs, young adults trapped in Juvenile detention Facilities and and folks mandated to attend Alternative to Incarceration programs. The projects I develop with the members of each group are based on relevant themes important to them, which loosely contain connections to the work in MomA's collection. I provide the varied audiences with workshops offsite, tours, or onsite art-making sessions in the museum, The work we make together culminate into a group art show at the museum.
