Art Educator Featured in Boston Voyager
Melanie Blood, an MAT in Art Education alum, 2011, was recently written up in the Boston Voyager. In the article, when asked about her work, she states, "My inspiration has shifted a bit since I became an educator. I am continually inspired by my everyday environment as a white female teacher in one of the largest urban schools on the East Coast. This culturally wealthy but economically challenged and often traumatized world is one that I am constantly navigating. My role and my place in this equation is one that I both value and constantly reflect upon. This space is where my narratives are born, where inspiration is attained and where my creativity flourishes - to me, this is what sets me apart from other artists."
