Piecing Yourself Whole

Yesterday I presented highlights of my arts and writing residency "Clip, Cut, Paste: Piecing Your Stories Together" to DC Public School teachers and administrators. Comprising three main components, my residency explores art (collage, paper decorating, painting); bookmaking (learning various hand made book forms); and creative writing (developing personal narratives) that allow students to honor themselves, their families and community. My residency is part of the Kennedy Center's DC School and Community Initiative. .
