Antonia Perez, Teaching Artist

description

In this interview with Lifetime Arts trainer and teaching artist, Antonia Perez, she talks about how an interaction she had with a group of children where she taught them how to paint a public mural led to her teaching painting and drawing to local small community groups. Her intergenerational teaching artist experiences led her down the path of Creative Aging, as she worked as an artist-in-residence in the hospital setting, first with children and then later with adults who had life-threatening diseases. Antonia also shares her most memorable moments, her advice for other teaching artists, the most satisfying parts of this work, and more.
