John Cloud Kaiser's work reminds you that you are an artist. Through his position as education director at Materials For The Arts, a program of NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and his work with his art group Free Style Arts Association, he has been doing participation-based art in the museums, streets and schools of New York City since 2000, appearing everywhere from P.S. 1 MoMA, to the NYC Parks Department, to The New York Times. His work focuses on giving people a creative participatory experience with an art piece while at the same time creating an incredibly dynamic work of art.
Kaiser graduated from NYU with an MA in Art Education and has worked as a teaching artist and curator since 2003, organizing hundreds of contemporary art projects at New York and New Jersey public schools. He teaches art teachers through professional development programs, advises schools and lectures on his education approaches at conferences. Some examples of his artwork can be found here.
