Natalia does a lot of drawing, painting and mixed media. She supports herself by teaching, and working in various museums and galleries. I thought that her work was very creative. I liked the fact that most of her pieces were inspired from places that she visited. See photos and descriptions from our visit to Natalia below!

One of Natalia’s pieces. She travels a lot and usually gets her inspiration from the places she’s been. This piece has a lot of Spanish culture in it. She said she had visited Mexico right before she made the piece.

Art ready students make mini drawings on transparent sheets, to then add them together to make a collage. Each student was handed a shell or other object from nature to draw with a sharpie color of their choice.
