Creative Engagement

Trainer: Tricia K. Blasko, Racine Art Museum/RAM's Wustum Museum

Tricia Blasko is the Curator of Education for the Racine Art Museum (RAM) and RAM’s Wustum Museum and manages one of the largest museum studio arts programs in Wisconsin. Tricia has over twenty years of museum education experience and has successfully developed many new arts engagement programs for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities at RAM, including RAM on the Road, Wustum on Wheels; Downtown Outreach; Drop-In Family Art Events; Mommy and Me toddler art program; and SPARK!, a creative cultural program for people with memory loss and their caregivers. As an artist, designer and educator, Tricia passionately believes in leading with imagination and has a strong creative vision to help others achieve their goals and potential.

Creative Engagement is the focus of this training inspired through the success of SPARK!, a cultural program for people with memory loss that is offered at museums throughout the country. The SPARK! program uses a variety of approaches that provide opportunities for a person to engage in the arts and culture through multisensory activities. This training will provide techniques to engage people through art and simple objects without having to visit a museum or gallery. Learn about these practices while gaining useful tips on interactions as we create, share and become inspired through a hands-on, interactive workshop.
