Bio: Michelle Acevedo - Creative Arts Director @ Work Skills Foundation - I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to work with a very special population of people! Artisan Corner , a Work Skills venture is a program designed specifically for artists & creatives with special needs and barriers to develop skills needed to become professional makers and paid artists. Myself along with our entire employment services team, staff and community volunteers have built this diverse program from scratch to help nurture a more inclusive environment for artists whom are differently abled to be able to earn an income doing what they love. I have the best job and I can't wait to wake up everyday and go to work! I myself am a professional mixed-media fiber artist, a wife, and a mom of four incredible humans. With all of the skills I have learned on my journey, I've learned the most from teaching.
