Having traveled throughout the state, teaching art to rural & marginalized communities, I often dreamt of bringing the studio (not just supplies and a project) to those I teach. Here’s the opportunity to make a dream come true...

Goals of The Tiny School of Art & Design

 
  • To understand the arts, not through project-based activities, but through exposure to the way an artist thinks and plays.

  • To emphasize that art can be linked to food, culture, technology, and life!

  • To bring the foundations of art and design to communities that do not have access to cultural and academic institutions.

 

Welcome to the Tiny School of Art & Design, and unschool focused on the foundations of art, found all around us!

While TTSAD has not been officially built yet, it is important to start sharing how and why I’m doing this project! For years, I’ve traveled with my car packed to the ceiling with art supplies, tools, equipment, and personal items to spend up to 3 weeks in a given location, teaching my artistry to rural communities. I love this work and wouldn’t have it any other way…

except…

If only I could bring my studio with me! I could take my work as a teaching artist one step farther, allowing for folks to use tools and experience art making the way I truly blossomed— through the foundations!
