Hi! My name is Clare, I'm an artist and educator passionate about building critical thinking skills through the arts. I'm currently working as the Object-based Specialist at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. In working as a mentor with our teen program it is an inspiration to witness the teen's critical thinking capacities grow weekly through gallery discussions. Likewise, it’s thrilling to hear from K-12 educators ready to take ideas from our programs back to their classroom. I’m keen to develop my capacity as a voice of best practices for gallery experiences. I’m also an artist working in a variety of media, for now my studio practice is on hold while I pursue a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston.
