Faculty

Hannah Baker

Hannah Baker is an artist and educator at Aspen Middle School. She originally from Northern Michigan, where she learned to be curious and aware of the space around her. She grew her artistic confidence in forests of towering hardwoods and pine trees that span miles of rolling hills. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and German and a minor in Museum Studies from the University of Michigan in 2018 and recently completed a Master of Arts in Teaching at Maryland Institute College of Art in May 2023. She began teaching in 2019, inspired by students’ strength in outdoor education, and wanted to incorporate those dispositions into her own classroom. She wants students to know their ideas have value, problem solve how to express these ideas, and understand the impact their creations have on others.Outside of teaching, she loves experimenting with her own art and baking delicious treats.

Together we’ll gain inspiration from famous artists who were a part of the American Pop Art movement. This includes the Band-Aid dot paintings of Roy Lichtenstein and his comic book imagery, Jim Dine’s energetic hearts, Andy Warhol’s prints and portraits, and Claes Oldenburg’s giant colorful sculptures of everyday objects. A wide range of artistic media will be incorporated such as papier-mâché, construction paper, paint, chalk, and fabric to create bold, bright, and beautiful artistic creations. Art Breaks are an exciting program at Anderson Ranch Arts Center for kids ages 7-10. They are scheduled to complement breaks in the elementary school calendar throughout the year. Drop off and pick up will take place at the Evelyn and Martin Siegel Children’s Building, just inside the main Anderson Ranch entrance. Children should come prepared with a snack, lunch, water bottle, and appropriate apparel for a full day of art-making.

Join us for a week of experimentation and pulpy play as we explore the possibilities of paper! In this workshop, we investigate all of the different forms this everyday material can take.

As we learn how to work with paper, we learn about where different paper fibers come from and how they have been used across cultures and traditions. Students end the week with a plethora of sculptural paper creations!
