Teacher, Sarah Schwartz, recently moved to Connecticut from Baltimore, Maryland where she taught art for 7 years with a local nonprofit organization, partnering with area city schools. Sarah sees the value of an arts education within a safe and supportive space.  She believes everyone is an artist, whether in painting, writing, gardening, performing, cooking, sculpting, drawing stick figures, playing a sport.. We are all artists in some way and this is especially true for children! Sarah will meet students where they are in their art making process and help cultivate who they are through the vehicle of art.
