HomeArtistsAimee Bryant

An artist of many trades; a professional actor, singer, songwriter, poet, dancer and choreographer, she approaches creativity from an organic aesthetic. In the classroom, this begins with nurturing the voices of the students by using community building activities to create a safe space in which they can be free to experiment with creative expression, take artistic risks, and explore and share their personal connection to the material. Aimee uses theater games, performance, movement, songwriting, spoken word, creative writing and rhythm to help students find an alternate entrance into academic curriculum. She wants to empower students to use collaboration as a problem-solving tool.

Oftentimes, students who are poor academic achievers are discovered to be brilliant artists. Aimee enjoys watching the transformation in their self-esteem when they find that they can be successful in class, and the elevation of the value of that student to the class because of his/her artistic acumen.
