Elizabeth Stanbro

I am focused and passionate about teaching in the Creative Aging Field and Workplace Transformation (Team Building, Personal Care, Enhanced Creativity). I have taught in diverse environments including an art museum, care homes, a university, a hospital, libraries and schools. I trained at the Creative Center in NYC for Creative Aging applications. From there I was inspired to take the certification courses for OMA (Opening Minds Through Art (Scripps Gerontology Center, Miami University, Oxford Ohio) and TimeSlips Storytelling. Both are designed for people with dementia and older adults. After training to become a Mindfulness instructor 7 years ago, I wanted to blend those teachings with art-making processes. I’ve presented this program at educator’s conferences and for individuals with PTSD and cancer survivors. I see this approach being applied within workplaces to enhance employee interaction, provide self-care tools and enhance creativity. *BFA and MFA in Studio Art *Certified Art Teacher in Colorado
