Dr. Rikki Asher

I have a strong professional studio background, which includes museum and gallery exhibitions; twenty five years as an art educator on the primary and secondary levels as well as college and museum teacher-training coordination and a deep and abiding commitment to making art accessible to a diverse range of communities, both in the US and internationally. I have researched, and published articles and book chapters about art methodology in both interdisciplinary and multi cultural programs and have lectured in classrooms and public art forums. My experiences teaching art in classrooms to both professionals and students in New York City, and at various national and international conferences, reflects what I do both as an educator, community muralist, and studio artist.
