SALISBURY — Ingrid Erickson will join the team at Waterworks Visual Arts Center as education coordinator.
She will oversee all educational opportunities including summer ARTventures, the ARTstops program, workshops, studio classes and community outreach programs.
“Art is a vitally important subject, and I believe that it should be made available to all people in our community,” she said. “I am excited to join the wonderful team at the Waterworks in achieving this goal.
“I am thrilled to be in such a great community of artists.”
Anne Scott Clement, executive director of Waterworks said the center is fortunate to have Erickson’s “talent, energy and enthusiasm.”
“She understands how vital education and outreach programs are to our community and she is dedicated to our mission of providing art opportunities to all people through our programs,” Clement said. “We are excited about all the new ideas she brings to Waterworks.”
Originally from Massachusetts, Erickson moved to Salisbury in July 2011.
She received her bachelor’s degree in art history with a minor in studio art, with a focus on printmaking from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vt., and a K-12 studio art certification in 2008 from the Maine College of Art in Portland.
