Son-Theroux to teach art classes at museum's Weny Education Center
Sarah Son-Theroux has joined the teaching staff at CCMA's Weny Education Center, and will teach four classes in the Winter Session:
Son-Theroux was born in Pennsylvania and studied at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Indiana University. She was awarded a painting residency at the Vermont Studio Center and a painting residency at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Son-Theroux taught English and art in Korea, and taught art at Indiana University, Stony Brook, New York, and Tabor Academy in Marion, MA.
Son-Theroux says, "As a teacher, I like the challenge of giving to each student the opportunity to explore himself or herself, to lead out of them what may reside inside...Discover is, more than anything else - self discovery."
As an artist Son-Theroux is drawn to painting landscapes. "The attempt at rendering nature is an adventure of 'traveling,' for each time one picks up a brush there is a new map to ponder, a new road to travel."
Son-Theroux was recently married to award-winning novelist and teacher, Alexander Theroux, and they reside in West Barnstable.
