Marielena is covering for Theresa again today and welcomes Lara Giordano from the D.R.A.W. Lara Giordano (Founder, Director of The D.R.A.W.) is an arts advocate, artist, retired Kingston High School art teacher and lifelong art educator. Giordano was instrumental in the design and implementation of KCSD’s arts driven interdisciplinary curriculum and founder of the PUGG program which started as an extension of her advanced art curriculum at the high school. She is the Founder of the Department of Regional Art Workers (The D.R.A.W.) and a Board Member of Kingston Midtown Arts District (MAD). Giordano is a dedicated community member and has served on the Board of Women’s Studio Workshop, served on the City of Kingston Arts Commission, and is committed to equity and access to the arts and art education for all.
Lara shares her background, the evolution of her work post teaching which led to the D.R.A.W. and all the good work happening there now.
Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from Radiokingston.org.
