About the Instructor:
JoAnn Nahabedian taught elementary school in Scarsdale, NY, for 24 years, where she introduced her students to art history through engaging and innovative units on Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Frank Lloyd Wright. Using an interdisciplinary approach, JoAnn demonstrated that art history can be presented to elementary school students in a meaningful and engaging way and is thrilled to bring her expertise to the Fairfield University Art Museum!
