Susan’s decades long public practice as facilitator and researcher, supporting and mentoring (TK-12) educators included habits of integrated learning focusing upon expressive arts and the liberatory redesign of learning spaces. Explicit connections were made with contemporary art practice, moving into exhibition and cultural spaces which are highly valued as models for teaching and making learning visible. Destinations for her work with educators have included the Oakland Museum of CA, The Jewish Contemporary Museum (SF),the Museum of African Diaspora (SF) and Asian Art Museum (SF).
Susan Wolf was born in the Chicago area. She received a B.A. in Studio Art from Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin. She lives in Berkeley, CA maintaining a home studio for drawing, mixed media and fiberwork while continuing to experiment with printmaking processes as a resident artist at Kala Art Institute.
