About the Artist

Artist is fully booked for the 2016-17 school year. Please contact us about next year!

Chloë's teaching artistry and artwork are driven by local landscapes and investigation of place. Understanding and connecting to her environment, she explores a variety of techniques such as, weaving, natural dyeing, papermaking, printmaking, and more.

Teaching Philosophy

Chloë strives to engage children in collaborative forms of art making with a focus on process, material exploration, inquiry, and hands on learning. She enjoys seeing students discover their own creative voice through curiosity and discovery.

Looking closely, science and printmaking Less

This residency provides students with the opportunity to slow down and look closely to reveal important details and connections. Individual students will choose either a native plant or insect to examine through a scientific and artistic lens. They will observe the visual characteristics of their plant or insect such as, line, shape, color, pattern, and texture and discuss their findings with the class. As discoveries are shared, students will develop both science and art vocabulary and begin making connections between the two disciplines. Chloë introduces and demonstrates both observational drawing and relief printmaking techniques, while integrating scientific observation and principles and elements of art. Through both mediums, student’s explore the ideas of scale and representational vs. abstract by zooming in and drawing their plant or insect three separate times, finding more detail with each drawing. These drawings will then be translated into a series or triptych of relief prints. This residency can be easily altered and changed to fit student and teacher needs and classroom curriculum.

Science and Printmaking for Teachers Less

In this workshop individual teachers will choose either a native plant or insect to examine through a scientific and artistic lens. They will look closely to discover the visual characteristics of their plant or insect such as, line, shape, color, pattern, and texture in order to explore ideas of habitat, adaptation and camouflage. Chloë introduces and demonstrates both observational drawing and relief printmaking techniques, while integrating scientific observation and principles and elements of art. Through both mediums, teachers will learn about scale and representational vs. abstract by zooming in and drawing their plant or insect three separate times, finding more detail with each drawing. These drawings will then be translated into a series or triptych of relief prints.

Supplies: $1/person
