Sarah Ahrens has been reveling in the process of art making and teaching for over twenty years. She is predominately a painter whose process is driven by playful experimentation of materials and investigation of ideas of place. Sarah has a genuine passion for reaching all types of learners through the power and magic inherent in the Arts. She is intensely curious and energized by the collaborative potential of the creative process, and is often found seeking out opportunities for this type of dynamic connection. She has come to believe that her art making and art teaching inform and inspire one another and that fostering a love for the Arts in our young people is crucial for sustaining a vibrant and connected community. Sarah happily makes her home with her husband and two young children in Shelburne, Vermont.
