Is it a bird? Is it a plane? But no! It is teaching artist extraordinaire, Diana Ryan, conducting a wild and fun black light painting frenzy with students in The Arts Center’s education program.
Diana has been a part of The Arts Center’s teaching staff for over 5 years. She leads a variety of visual art classes for our after school program, globetrotters, and AIE residencies. This spring Diana is teaching at Philomath Elementary, Wilson, and Liberty.
