Susan Schwake is a curator, artist, and art educator. Her love of teaching art has led her to work in a variety of settings for more than 20 years. At private and public schools, museums, community groups, special needs agencies, summer camps, intergenerational facilities, libraries, and her own art school, artstream in Rollinsford, New Hampshire, which she co-owns with her husband, Rainer, she has inspired thousands of people. She just launched a series of e-courses for artists, including a parent-child workshop based on her best-selling Art Lab for Kids series of books. She's also the curator of artstream studios, where she's organized over 100 group shows of contemporary art in her New England neighborhood.
Susan is the author of Art Lab for Kids (2012), Art Lab for Little Kids (2013), and 3D Art Lab for Kids (2013), all published by Quarry Books.
