Woolgathering

Elizabeth Perry is an artist, writer and media specialists working with teachers and students to integrate art, language, science and storytelling through electronic media.

She recently led a workshop at the Mattress Factory, a premier contemporary installation sculpture museum and performance space. (Check out what kids are doing there in the Matress 14 Project!)

Perry's own book-to-blog works of watercolor sketches are wonderful meditations on the simple beauty of the everyday.

My inner-city neighborhood in Pittsburgh has several community organizations. I've served on the board of one of them.
