Artist Residencies:
Cassandra will happily work with your school or organization to develop an artist residency that is best suited for your community. 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 well with children and teenagers. 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. Students will learn about art and the elements of art while also exploring history, culture, language and literature.
