I am a 1st year Graduate student in the Ceramics department at SAIC. I grew up in The Netherlands but spent the past eight years in Boston, where I attended the Museum School for my Undergraduate studies. I have been making public art and organizing community arts events in Boston for the past six years. I am excited to be the TA for this course and I encourage the students in this class to ask me anything, big or small! My role in this class is very much that of a project manager. I’m here to keep us all organized and on the same page, to help students make connections and find resources, and to make sure all students’ voices are heard. I will do some advising alongside Drea and can help students with technical and fabrication aspects of the projects.
