this be part II of this post.
My first official job was at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I was 16 years old and my art teacher in High School recommended me for the paid internship and I was lucky enough to get it. I took the bus from Little Village into downtown every Saturday morning for 2 years and got to work with so man amazing artists! My artistic appetite grew more each session as I worked alongside many artists assisting in their youth classes (collage class, painting classes, theater classes, architecture classes, dance, music & more) and had the opportunity to experiment in different art forms. Little did I know was also prepping me to work as a teaching artist myself in the future.
walls of wonder. get your art on. every chance you get.
Thanks for stopping by today!
