About Miss Rose

Miss Rose

Miss Rose and company

I am Rose, the founder and educator at Art Barn.

I am an artist, potter, passionate gardener and landscaper. After graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art with a degree in Ceramics, I taught pottery to both adults and children at small art centers and at MIT. My first full time teaching position was in the Brookline Public After School Program. The school’s full time Art Teacher recommended I apply to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts where she also taught. It is there that I earned my Masters of Fine Arts in Teaching. As a graduate student, I was chosen to teach children’s art classes at the Museum of Fine Arts.

I am a self taught gardener; for me, gardening is art. It involves color, light, and life cycles. My gardening began with a love for flowers and has evolved into a way of life where I eat the food I grow, and find a personal haven in my own yard.

For the last twenty years,  I have been an art teacher in the Boston Public Schools. I have taught a variety of age groups; throughout these experiences, I have become specialized in teaching very young children. I am excited to share my love for art and nature with young children and stimulate their development, creativity, and curiosity.
