Tell us what you love about working at GSSM. 

The open art studio at GSSM and the GSSM environment as a whole is one of discovery! I absolutely love that our students have the opportunity to explore, innovate and create in GSSM’s Art Studio whenever their schedule allows. It’s always a thrill to work with curious, enthusiastic, students who want to dig deeply and express their ideas creatively. 

Give us a Twitter-style short bio about yourself.

Human-friendly art guru. Aficionado of fun. Enthusiastic student of life.
