Profile Type: Artist
Susan Rosano

I am a Master Teaching Artist and a Registered Expressive Arts Consultant and Educator for the past twenty years, bringing visual and expressive arts projects to schools, libraries, hospitals, museums and other venues for people of all ages, from pre-k to senior citizens. I have a Masters Degree from Wesleyan University in Fine Arts. I create my own original projects to fit the need of the venue or group. My projects are murals painted on walls, backer board or recycled oil drums, mosaic arts using pre-made ceramic or stained glass tiles, zentangle art, mask making, woodland fairy & elf environments, and much more. I give mosaic classes to the public at my studio in Guilford, VT. I have sold my mosaic works all over New England and on different artist websites.

I am a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist, Consultant and Educator through the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association. I have twenty  years of experience working with healing arts and bringing legacy projects to terminally ill patients. In the past, I have worked at St. Francis Hospital's Integrative Medicine Dept., Hartford, CT, as an expressive arts specialist, pastoral counselor and hypnotist. I have worked as an expressive arts therapist at the Kennedy Center, CT, VSA Arts in Connecticut, Masonicare Hospice and many other venues such as schools, hospitals, and programs for people with developmental disabilities.
