My name is Sarah Gregory, and I am a newly established resident of Philadelphia from South Carolina. I recently graduated from Winthrop University with a degree in Drawing and Sculpture. I was very excited to discover Art Sphere Inc, because it seemed like exactly the opportunity that I was looking for, to become involved with and contribute to the Philadelphia Community.
Throughout my undergraduate experience I became increasingly involved in community events, running two student galleries and organizing a variety of community arts events. After graduating it became clear that I wanted to use my creative and interpersonal skills in a way that contributes, in a meaningful way, to the community around me. I think that art education is an incredibly valuable tool for engaging individuals in learning, community, and their relationship with the world around them. I hope to acquire a Masters Degree in Art Education in the near future, and in the long term, to eventually open a non-profit community arts center somewhere in the southeast. If I can use my skills to foster creative and critical thinking skills as well as an inquisitive and empathetic attitude in others, I would feel incredibly fulfilled. With Art Sphere I hope to develop experience teaching, and to learn as much as possible about the daily operations of a non-profit arts organization.
In addition to volunteering at ArtSphere, in my free time I enjoy working on artwork (drawing/painting/mixed media installations), and spending time with my fiancee and our awesome dog. I hope to meet you all soon!
