Pandemic Painting, Magic Realism & The Spirituality Of Creativity| Teachers' Lounge Podcast

Oct 16, 2020

Our guest this episode is Judith Meyer, she’s an artist -- a painter, to be exact -- and art professor at Rock Valley College.

Judith talked to host Peter Medlin about how to virtually teach about art, the unexpected places around the world her art has gone to, what she's been working on during the pandemic, creativity as a spiritual exercise and so much more.
