education

While working as an intern in the education department of The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA), I:

 

  • Curated a student art exhibition in November, 2017.
  • Work alongside educators, leading BMoCA art events, such as the Dia De Los Muertos event and more.
  • Photographed art camps. Photos are published on the website and in print materials.
  • Created the curriculum for the BMoCA Summer Games event. This involved planning art activities for both kids and adults, with the focus on combining art and physical exercise.
  • Created the curriculum for Art Stop. Art Stop is a kid’s craft stand during the Boulder Farmer’s Market where art activities will be led by an educator. I created the curriculum for all 34 weeks and will also be an educator for Art Stop during the Boulder Farmer’s Market
  • Created six Young Artists at Work (YAW) summer art camp curriculums, each camp being five days long from 9-5 each day. Developing this curricula involved intensive research and planning. Details below.
