  • About the Artist:

    John is a TAI 1 & 2 Certified teaching artist and member with Arts for Education for 13 years traveling throughout Maryland and beyond. His "BIG" idea is grounded in sharing the 110 year old folk art of Screen Painting which was embraced in Baltimore in 1913. With a rich history, connections of Maryland, and the "MAGIC" behind this artform, it's an extraordinary magnet of enthusiasm for students of all ages. Connecting to any common core curriculum enables John to forge the exciting challenges in a classroom setting. John has available two approaches for school and students offering a "Legacy" or "Individual" screens. Completing the steps of screen painting offers the elements of hands-on design while embracing the spirit of individuality working as a team. And they have FUN!
    John is truly grateful and humbled to be associated with so many incredible Educators.
