Cathleen Cohen, Education Director
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.
