Student Interview // Clarissa Todd

When she was a girl, Clarissa Todd started making art when she was bored in church while her father preached. “I would sit in the church pew and just take out a sketchbook and create some art work,” she said.  “At the end of the sermon, I would show my mom and next thing you know, I'm sitting at home with a sketchbook, but it all started from sketching inside the church”  Now, Todd is a candidate in Graduate Studies at Moore’s MA in Art Education with An Emphasis in Special Populations.  In this video you’ll hear Clarissa talk about her teaching philosophy and her experiences at Moore and student teaching at Bala Cynwyd Middle School (BCMS), as well as from BCMS students and teacher Beverly Rusoff.
