LOUISE DIEDRICH

Teaching Artist

Open-ended arts projects start with inspiration.  Myth, music, literature and nature spark  conversations in the classroom. From there, structured exploration provide students with a means of  conceiving, devoloping and refining work using  visual art processes.

These projects stress conceptual provocation, reinforce literacy curriculum, and reveal the power of children's imaginations. The resulting artwork communicates ideas about our friends, our families and ourselves.

New York City Public Schools and Early Education Programs, have extraordinary teachers and student populations. This diversity is source of great cultural wealth and inspires me to carry multiple histories, uncommon perspectives and unique means of creating artwork into the classroom.
