Michelle MariglianoArt Form(s):
I believe the arts provide opportunities for individuals of all abilities to express oneself regardless of age, gender, disability, or intellectual aptitude. In my work I invite participants to use their knowledge to make connections between the arts and other areas of life and learning. As a result, the creative process calls us to transfer our intelligence as we celebrate the multi-textured beauty of the human experience.
