Mollie Morrison is a mixed media artist and educator. Fabric, texture, pattern and vivid colors are what drive her watercolor collage artwork. She has been teaching art for nineteen years at various schools and programs including Brookfield School, Leonardo Da Vinci, Crocker Art Museum and I Can Do That. She studied Fashion and Art at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC and worked with DKNY Jeans in both Atlanta, Georgia and San Francisco, CA. She completed her Visual Art teaching credential in 2013. She currently works at CK McClatchy High school as the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Coordinator. The CKM VAPA Program she worked to establish gives students a four-year art opportunity at the high school level. By providing this platform for students, the CKM VAPA program is establishing college and career readiness for young artists in every art form. Mollie’s focus day-to-day is in the sculpture studio, as the 3-D Art teacher for beginning, advanced and AP 3D artists. Mollie finds joy in the many discoveries students make as they explore art history. Teaching young people about the accomplishments of well-known artists, art movements and art happenings gives them permission to take risks in their own artwork. Mollie is excited to join the Friends of Sacramento Arts Board to increase students access to the arts and to amplify the need of arts education.
