Evolution of Harvest Studio
As a documenter, video editor and evaluator, I worked in classrooms with teachers and children to document their use of new methods and materials. In a collaborative process, we used photo and video as tools for reflection and inquiry. This work expanded when artists joined us, and we began to discover how integrating the arts could engage and focus students and help teachers establish authentic classroom relationships.
I was a hobby painter, and felt that even this small art practice helped me to understand what was going on with art and learning. I decided to seriously study an art form. After many years of study, I earned the Certificate of Merit in Botanical Art at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. As my art practice developed, my professional skills deepened.
