At Parkway, Dr. Cathy Cohen of Artwell facilitated the "We the Poets" program every Tuesday throughout most of my high school career. She would give us various topics to write about, or have us start off poems with a specific sentence.

This week we are taking the time to shine a light onto one of our own talented staff members: Cathleen Cohen!

We all know Cathy now as the Education Director here at ArtWell, but before her time spent with us, Cathy spent 25 years working as a special education teacher, poet, tutor, teaching artist, and painter. Cathy's wide range of interests and talents have taken her on remarkable journeys that continue to serve as sources of inspiration for her work here at ArtWell today.
In her twenties, Cathy spent time volunteering in Israel holding teacher training sessions and poetry writing workshops among many different communities of people. Bringing back her knowledge and experiences from Israel, Cathy continued to teach in the U.S, using the arts as a vehicle for multicultural education and understanding.
With the creation of the Interfaith Youth Poetry Project in the aftermath of September 11th 2001, Cathy partnered up with ArtWell for the first time, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, Cathy has continued to share her talent and passion with us here at ArtWell, through both her teaching and curriculum development, as well as, in the training of our teaching artists. A firsthand witness to the transformative power of the arts, Cathy finds constant inspiration in the talents of her students, and in their ability to overcome challenges.
Having also pursued a degree in Fine Art, Cathy spends much of her free time painting (abstract watercolor being her preferred medium), as well as, writing her own poetry. Using the arts to express her feelings and to reflect upon her own experiences allows Cathy to truly practice what she preaches to her students. We could not be happier to have someone as dedicated and gifted as Cathy to be a part of our team here at ArtWell!
In closing, we wanted to share a poem, written by Cathy, with all of you. Happy reading!
