A-Z Creativity has come about after 20+ years of learning to be creative. In high school, Keriann was always a good student who was very adept at doing what she was told. She could write the essay as it needed to be written for good marks and follow the steps of the lab. She could not, however, develop an original idea in art class: her ability to deviate from what was in front of her and be creative was lacking. This led Keriann to continue to challenge herself to be creative by choosing to take art classes and study to be an art educator. Since then, Keriann has spent her adult life seeking out creativity in both formal and informal spaces. Formally, she has studied art education and creativity, majoring in Art Education in undergrad and going on to receive an MA in Art Education from Teachers College, Columbia University and a MS in Creativity & Change Leadership from Buffalo State College. Informally, she has pushed herself as an artist, taking workshops in experimental media and solving visual and technical problems in ceramics, digital media, and printmaking. When it comes to teaching, Keriann has over a decade of experience working with individuals and groups globally to open their creativity, specializing in working with children. Keriann’s experience has qualified her to deliver intentional programming in demystifying and fostering the development of creative habits and life skills through arts programming. Keriann is passionate about creativity and looks forward to working with you to help bring creativity and creative practice into your life.
