Kat is an art historian with a Ph.D. in Art History and Education from the University of Arizona. As an art and visual culture educator with an emphasis in museums, museum education and street art her practice is grounded in the cultivation of open dialogues through the use of constructivist learning models. Whether it’s touring a group of kindergarteners through a museum or discussing a course reading with undergraduate and graduate students, she firmly believes that conversation is the key to creating a productive space for both the facilitator and the students. In the past, she has worked for art gallery and museum education departments in Spain, England and the United States. Her work has been published in museum and interdisciplinary journals and she has presented her research on museums as informal learning spaces for undergraduate students both nationally and internationally. Most recently Kat’s work appeared as a chapter in Engaging Communities Through Civic Engagement in Art Museum Education (2021) edited by Bryna Bobick and Carissa DiCindio. As well as a chapter in Narratives on Becoming: Identity and Lifelong Learning (2021) edited by Emilie Clucas Leaderman and Jennifer S. Jefferson.
