Emily has been with ArtMix since 2001. She has a degree in art history from Indiana University and Art Education from Herron School of Fine Art.

Philosophy: I believe it is my responsibility as an ArtMix Teaching Artist to use my knowledge, experience, and skills to instruct my students in the arts. The arts are a pathway to learning. The knowledge, experience and skills that my students gain through the production of art lead to not only learning, but the development of confidence, life skills, and a new outlook on life. I enjoy being a part of helping facilitate this wonderful process.
