Arts Program Director, Liz Stanley, comes to us with a background in art education, and has been teaching art from preschool age to adults, in every medium, for the last sixteen years. Liz recently moved back to the states after seven years teaching abroad in Turkey, Cambodia and Costa Rica. Liz lost her best friend, who was an amazing artist, to ALS nearly three years ago.
This has inspired me to bring my passion for the therapeutic power of creation to people living with ALS. - Liz Stanley
In the vision of Ken Baltes, Liz is here to cultivate creative experiences for people living with ALS and launch our Creative Pursuits program through The ALS Association-Minnesota hub. This program will expand as it takes root and soon be offered in neighboring states.
If there is an idea or creative pursuit you'd like to share, or if you would like to donate time, materials or creative space please collaborate with Liz at Liz.Stanley@als.org.
