Cathleen Cohen, Education Director
Cathy@theArtWell.org
Cathy, Director of Education, has more than 30 years of teaching experience. Cathy oversees curriculum and content development for the organization's programming and assists in programming administration and implementation. She is a founder of ArtWell's We the Poets, a forum in which children from different cultures and faiths can write and share their poetry. Cathy was also instrumental in developing ArtWell's HeartSpeak curriculum and programming, which centers on violence prevention and giving youth and adults tools for self-expression that lead to inner and community-wide peacemaking and healing. Both curricula are aligned with federal and state K-12 educational curriculum standards and are based on leading-edge best practices in their respective disciplines.
Cathy is very hands on in her work with - and outside - the Center. Since 1989, she has led poetry workshops in a variety of public schools and private schools of all faiths throughout Philadelphia and beyond. She received the Public Service Award (2004) from the National Association of Poetry Therapy, and the Interfaith Relations Award (2003) from the Montgomery County Advisory Board to the PA Human Rights Commission. Cathy's doctorate is in Learning Disabilities from Northwestern University. She also holds a certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Read how teaching artist Cathy Cohen is volunteering her time to make sure every child is on the same reading level.
...
A crowd of students rush down the hallway towards teaching artist Cathy Cohen, knocking into each other as they wrap her in a big group hug, breathlessly asking her, "Are you coming to our classroom today?"
When Cathy smiles, her eyes sparkle. It is easy to see why her students love her. She has a gentle voice, and warmth about her that invites people in. She knew she wanted to be a teacher at the age of 15 when she started tutoring. 45 years later, with a doctorate in learning differences from Northwestern University, and thousands of teaching hours under her belt, Cathy still feels the calling to inspire and mentor children. Cathy joined ArtWell in our third year and the match was magical. She brought a wealth of expertise in poetry and teaching, as well as amazing relationships with partners of diverse faiths and cultures.
...
In response, Cathy began volunteering to tutor several students every Tuesday and Friday, and enlisted three other adults to help. Together, they have created an intimate support system where the kids feel comfortable sharing, exploring, making mistakes, and learning. She developed guidelines for the group that foster kindness, and encourage the students to take risks within the safety of the group.
