Our Preschool ART Faculty - In Their Own Words Dawn Walker

Program Coordinator, Art & Music Teacher “My background includes working with children in both music & art. I studied art at the University of Maine & music at the New England Conservatory of Music. I have participated in the PACT Art Focus programs in the Mountain View school district, & art programs at the McAuliffe School in Cupertino. I have taught art classes at CSMA for more than three years. I enjoy teaching art to preschool children & bringing out their creativity by combining the sensory experience of sight, sound & touch.”

MaryAnn Girard “I have taught art classes for preschool & school age children at CSMA for several years. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Springfield, Missouri & have spent time working with ceramic & porcelain restoration. I enjoy working with children in art & watching their creativity process unfold. “

Lena Boot “My passion is working with preschool-age children, giving them opportunities to be creative in art. In the style of Reggio Emelia, I provide a creative art environment that gives children the opportunity to observe, inquire, explore & use fine motor & cognitive skills. Art provides them with an awareness of themselves & their surroundings.”

Lisette Lugo “I encourage creativity & hands-on projects that give children choices. I have a degree from Academy of Art in San Francisco & training in early childhood education with an art focus. My love for teaching art has taken me from preschool to retirement communities, teaching ages 2 to 102, using art as therapy & teaching those with disabilities. Art is my passion.”

Maria Raffaella Cefalo “I received my master’s degree in Education/Creative Arts in Learning from Lesley University in Cambridge Mass. I have spent many years teaching art to preschoolers & I love doing exploratory projects with children.”

SMA’s Camp Program provides children the opportunity to express, explore, create and enjoy the arts in a relaxing, safe and fun environment. Our faculty of professional artists, musicians and arts educators creates a stimulating, nurturing experience for young artists to share the joy of making art, music and new friends. With more than 75 camps offered every year, the program provides a diversity of choices designed to expose your child to the rich multi-cultural, multi-faceted world of the arts. A low teacherstudent ratio ensures individualized attention.

Projects provide the opportunity for campers to work on their own and on collaborative projects. End-of-camp exhibitions and performances provide young artists the chance to share with family and friends and to showcase their creations. CSMA’s year-round camp program offers sessions during school vacations (Dec, Feb, Apr) and throughout the summer (June-Aug). Flexible enrollment options (half- and full-day) allow you to create a schedule that meets your child’s needs and is convenient for your family.

Board of Directors David Sacarelos, Chair David Carter, Vice Chair John Conover, CFO Kathy Thibodeaux, Secretary Nobuko Saito Cleary

or a petite skinny-legged girl, growing up “old school” meant children were to be seen, not heard. Positive reinforcement was not a parenting strategy. When your parent or teacher remarked that you were special, it was not a compliment. And, a child did what was expected and directed by adults. No questions asked. None. Then, that little girl began piano lessons at the community music school…and drawing class…and voice lessons…and musical theatre in her high school. She entered a world where thoughtful reflection, discipline and emotional vulnerability were prized. Where curiosity was encouraged and questions in the pursuit of excellence required. Trial and error and improvisation, often in front of strangers, a seminal part of learning.

Jan Fenwick

That little girl’s voice made her special and her teachers told her this without the usual, dripping hallmark New Jersey sarcasm. In a world where life was very prescribed, a world of possibility opened, culminating in multiple degrees and decades of commitment as an arts advocate.

Kelleen Sullivan Finn

That skinny-legged little girl was me.

Peter J. Landsberger

At CSMA, we open a world of possibility for every student. For the more than 15,000 students from ages 18 months to 90 years old in our elegant award-winning Finn Center and in over 30 public, private and charter schools across our region: Silicon Valley.

Our exceptional faculty and staff are committed to helping you to open the door of possibility in yourself through art and music. For those whom financial circumstances prevent this opportunity, financial aid through scholarships and subsidies to our arts education in the schools alleviate this obstacle. For Sala, our teenaged “Kiri Te Kanawa” with the shimmering voice, a scholarship made it possible for her study at CSMA. Generous support made it possible for 600 Lyndale Elementary School students in East San Jose to study art, which helped to improve their academic performance and test scores in language arts and math. Will you join me in making a gift to ensure the exceptional quality of our programs and to help open a world of new possibilities for a child? With much appreciation,

Moy Eng Executive Director

• We sustain community Each year, significant funds are allocated as scholarships for students who demonstrate extraordinary dedication to their studies as well as those for whom the cost of lessons and classes is an impediment. The Larson Society, honoring Robert and Sue Larson, is a scholarship fund created to ensure that CSMA can continue to provide this help in the coming years to those who need it most. Gifts to the Larson Society support the creativity and talent of Silicon Valley’s future, our young people. Realizing our mission cannot be accomplished alone by the fees we receive for the classes we provide. We rely on the generosity of our loyal donors to help fund our dynamic programming. It’s only with this investment that we can continue to provide the high-caliber learning opportunities that you associate with CSMA, so please take a moment to show your support with a contribution now.
