Abigail Kramer graduated from the University of La Verne in May, 2017 with a BA in Liberal Studies. She is currently working as a preschool teacher and she thoroughly enjoys it. She feels that art is applicable to every part of life and can be celebrated in a variety of forms whether that be poetry, dance, song, or fine arts. The list certainly goes on. As a preschool teacher and future elementary school teacher, she plans to articulate her love for art in the classroom. Art can be a powerful learning vessel that she plans to use to create meaningful learning experiences for her students. Hopefully, she will contribute to a greater appreciation for art.
Isabel Alegría Falconí Núñez has been exploring art and bio-sustainable paths since her early years, fruit of the influence and fascination with the natural and the artistic environments present in her home as well as her country, Ecuador. She studied most of her childhood and teenage years at the experimental school El Sauce in Tumbaco, the beautiful valley that surrounds Quito. She graduated with an IB (international baccalaureate) from Terranova High School. From the age of twelve, she attended an experimental workshop, a place where her painting and art practices deepened. She then moved to Brazil. She is a sophomore student pursuing a BA in Arts at the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, in Vitoria. She is developing theoretical and practical projects with teachers and colleagues. She is increasingly fascinated with the environments she discovers every day.
