Recent visiting artist and critic appointments include: 2021 at MICA Baltimore and Graduate Program of Painting, Hochschule Weisensee painting and drawing departments; 2020 ESADMM Marseille department of painting; 2016, screenprinting workshop for painting students at L’Institut Supérieur des arts de Toulouse, a week-long workshop for painting students at TU Dortmund, and a talk on my work at Museum Ostwall in Dortmund. I’m currently offering coaching/docent assistance for Berlin artists with the BBK Berlin helping them communicate verbally and in writing about their work.

workshop ESADMM Marseille March 2020

burning our worries: an icebeaker and art making prep activity for the beginning of a workshop

WE ARE ALIVE AT THE SAME TIME

in Marseille

Taking back our attention and re-focusing: In this workshop with the class of Professor Katharina Schmidt, we used visual and olfactory art making methods to selectively focus our artistic awareness and intentions.

I implemented performance-type group activities in order to create a safe collaborating space and activate the collective energy of the participants.

We also experienced how ritual art making activities can be explored and invented in order to address a wide range of specific obstacles to art making and  to find new ways for working through ideas.
