About Cassandra Monson:
Cassandra is a professional artist and a freelance art teacher. Cassandra has a BFA from the College of Visual Arts and many years of teaching experience. She teaches art classes all over the Twin Cites and facilitates community-based collaborative public art projects and artist residences in public and private schools. Cassandra teaches students to invest themselves in the creative process so that they will build a quality product. She has a fluid but organized teaching style that works with children and adults of all ages. She teaches all art forms from painting to papermaking and sculpture to bookmaking. Cassandra combines quality art materials with reusing and recycling to enhance her student's creative problem solving skills and promote environmental consciousness. She is interested in facilitating collaborative work that incorporates history and culture in the artistic process.
Cassandra shows her artwork on a regular basis at local galleries, nightclubs, community and art spaces. She also participates in local art fairs and sells her work regularly in local art centers and art shops. This provides a rich opportunity for her students to learn from a working artist.
