I co-taught a semester long art club for Midtown Academy's 5th-8th graders in the spring of 2008. This was made possible through MICA's Community Arts Partnership. Students worked in various media, creating personalized portfolios, flip books, protective puppets, environmental mono-prints, self-portraits, photographs using disposable cameras, and digitally altered images using photoshop.

This 26 foot long painting was collaboratively created by students in the Art Club. They started by tracing the outlines of their bodies onto the paper, and then choosing a color that they thought represented their personality to paint the inside of their body as. Students then painted outlines around their classmate's bodies, mixing a new color to represent each person in their class.

During my fourth semester doing community arts in Baltimore, I worked at the 901 Arts Center After School Program. I worked collaboratively with 2 other teachers to help students create a performance for their neighborhood showcase. Students worked on a mural backdrop, as well as costumes and scripts, that told stories about how to improve local issues in their neighborhood.
