Here’s a story…
Artpace’s family of Associate Educators has grown once again and we couldn’t be happier. This fall, we’re delighted to welcome Christopher Rabb and Ramon Munoz to join our diverse team. Associate Educators fulfill our mission to nurture the creative expression of our youngest artists by actively engaging youth audiences. They give tours and teach outreach programs that encourage students to learn about contemporary art through the eyes of our Artpace artists. Each Educator brings his or her own unique talents to the group, and during this season of thanks, we couldn’t be more thankful to have each and every one of them.
Chris has both a Masters of Fine Arts in Art and Masters of Art in Art from the University of Dallas, focused in painting. He recently relocated to Texas from Anchorage, Alaska, where he taught art in various outreach programs. Ramon, a local San Antonian, graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art, also with a focus in painting. He has been honing his education skills in town by teaching with the Mobile Arts Program through the Southwest School of Art at the Inspire Community Fine Arts Center.
Together, the team of Associate Educators make contemporary art accessible to the community. With more than 400 young students touring Artpace exhibitions this week, we couldn’t do it without the whole bunch!
