Cecily M. Chavira
Cecily Marie Chavira recently graduated in May 2019 from Humboldt State with a major in Art Education and a minor in Early Childhood Development. She enjoyed working as a student assistant teacher at HSU’s Children’s Center during her entire undergraduate career where she cared for children 3 months to 5 years old, helped with art projects, and made sure to have fun with the kids. She is a practicing artist working in various mediums, primarily painting, ceramics, and sewing.
Cecily is currently the museum’s Education Coordinator, offering art history and hands-on arts education, both at the museum and in partnership with community agencies. She strongly believes a major part of making art and learning stems from having fun and being exposed to multiple ways of making. She aims to support students in stepping out of their comfort zones, trying something new, and exploring their interests.
Haley Davis is an Art Educator who has studied at many studios and institutions, received degrees in Fine Art and Art Education, and practices her art as an avid observational drawer. She taught through the California Art Council as a Teaching Artist at five schools in two of Humboldt County’s public school districts and continues to love working with students after 5 years to all levels of children, teens and adults. She has participated in local and national Art Education conferences, attends Humboldt Art Council, and Art Education meetings, and has dedicated eight years to building her artistic skills. Haley teaches art from her heart, building self-esteem in her students and challenging them to find their inner artist. She believes that through the process of doing art, individuals experience creative thinking, problem solving, and develop their ability to participate in culture. Each art endeavor that is proposed with children, teens and adults develops technical skills, artistic interpretation, and a unique quality that is recognizable as a piece of the creator.
