|As a working visual artist, making art is a regular part of Cynthia’s life, which compliments and inspires her various teaching/presentation events. “I find that my students inspire my own artwork and vice-versa. The processes and concepts may be different, but the energy and creative spirit cross back and forth.|
Cynthia also has many years of experience in arranging to bring artists from all over the country to schools in New Hampshire. This practical background makes Cynthia an easy artist to work with. She understands budgets, has written many grants, and has coordinated artist visits that work in concert with school schedules.
Teaching Artist Vision Statement
“Eco Art a la carte is based on my work as an “Eco Artist” (a new form of environmental artist) and my passion for teaching. I believe that visual art can provide a simple gateway to understanding and exploring our natural environment. Developing this relationship between students and the places in which they live is, in my opinion, essential to educating socially and environmentally conscious future adults. My approach to teaching is based on creating a learning space where students can apply their natural creative ability to new materials and concepts.”
A Visual Artist with over twenty years experience designing, teaching and directing learning and arts programs.
Cynthia is certified by New Hampshire to teach Visual Art for grades K-12.
