Lisa Fields Clark

Fields Clark, Lisa

Mosaic artist Lisa Fields Clark presents workshops designed to empower participants by focusing on art-making that supports individuals in their artistic choices; finding uncomplicated, age- and ability- appropriate paths to draw out creativity; and guiding them to certain success. Following careers in graphic arts and social services, Lisa shifted her attention toward traditional and mixed media mosaic arts, community outreach, and arts education. As a teaching artist, Lisa's goal is to empower participants by focusing on the individual and their creative process in order to raise self-esteem, foster inclusion, and allow each individual to experience self-expression. Her own mosaic art has been described as “traditional folk art with a contemporary twist” and has been shown in galleries throughout the USA. Lisa is the author of Art Facilitation for Special Needs Populations (Cats After Dark Press, LLC, 2012) and holds a BS in Social Services/Business Management.
