My name is Joan Crane. I am an doctorate graduate of adult and continuing education at National-Louis University, Chicago. Currently, I am working on writing my m
aster's thesis (Study #2) on the approaches used by teaching artists that encourage adults to lead a creative life. This study is a partial requirement for graduating from The University of Florida's Art in Education masters program.
My studies respects the diversity of personal experience and challenges traditional pedagogical notions.
The outcome of my studies are intended to ultimately create a more inclusive, safe, or structured contemporary art course or workshop for all adult learners.
