Alison Dilworth is a process-driven artist with the conviction that her job as a teacher is to provide students with the tools they need to implement their own creative ideas. She is more interested in the imaginative minds and hearts of children than the rigid agendas of adults. A longstanding teacher at Fleisher Art Memorial, she has worked with youth ages 5 – 18 in various mediums through the Saturday Young Artists Program and was the Teen Lounge Coordinator from 2014 to 2015. Her work ranges from independently designed and painted murals, installation art, hand-bound books, printmaking, drawing, scrimshaw, oil painting, and puppet building, to writing on an excessive collection of manual typewriters, and is woven through church sanctuaries, restaurants, rooftops, homes, and exterior walls. Her basic catch-phrase is “do it like you mean it.” She means it.
