Carol Kase has taught at the Creative Workshop since 2008. She is also a MAG docent who frequently takes her students into the museum so they can make connections between their artwork and artists’ work on exhibit.
She tells us “the best part about teaching at the MAG is the students—their curiosity, enthusiasm and excitement at discovering new ways to create and gain confidence in their artistic abilities.”
A favorite memory is from a summer class she taught to four- to six-year-olds. After exploring MAG’s outdoor penguin sculpture and large bird sculptures from a special exhibit, students created their own “magical birds” sculptures. Carol temporarily displayed the birds outdoors around the penguin sculpture, and invited the parents to find their children’s birds. The children and parents had a wonderful time sharing this art experience.
