Jill Dubbeldee-Kuhn - Visual arts- Mural, illustration & book making


Jill Dubbeldee-Kuhn

Teaching Experience Grades K-12 and Adults

I am a living sponge for color and creativity. My job as a teaching artist is to spread the love of hands-on discovery through my own art and passion for books, learning and the next generation.

Here are some of the ways I like to explore and nurture creativity:

  • Hands-on applications 
  • Contemporary approaches
  • Presentations
  • Projects that promote literacy

Residency projects…

"You Animal You" is a drawing class suitable for grade school in which I teach students how to create animated characters using letters from the alphabet as jumping off points.  

"Old Book New Book" is a residency that can help us all answer such questions as :  Where did books begin ? What did the first book look like?  How are books from our past different from books today?  What is the future of the book?  Can a book be art?

Hands-on applications to learn the history of the book could include writing with quills,ink mixing, calligraphy, illuminated capitals,gold leafing, paste papers and making accordion books.

All projects can be adapted to fit the needs of the class and goals and preferences of the teachers.
