Sara Noori is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. Since graduating summa cum laude from the University of Louisville in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Studio Arts from the Hite Institute of Art and Design, they have worked within a wide range of art institutions and studio settings, from the Department of Education at the KMAC, Speed Art Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, teaching in their classroom at The Old Town School of Folk Music, and partnering with numerous institutions in and around Louisville and the greater Chicago area. They are deeply passionate about details, equity, and the arts, Sara’s thread of passion is uplifting and uniting people through the universal language of art.
As a Teaching Artist, they engage in meaningful dialogue using the universal language of art, to encourage a deeper development of an individual’s creative practice and nurture a stronger relationship with the world at large. Leading and co-leading artmaking and art-based experiences in both public and private education settings has helped them make a unique connection with people of various economic, racial, and social backgrounds. Led by my passion to explore the world around me with a sense of wonder, they foster curiosity and experimentation through fun and unique curriculum designed around my students’ potential. Their work with multiple museums and cultural institutions over the last ten years gives them the ability to work within large teams, assisting visiting artists, co-leading public creation spaces, and confidently engaging with children and families in interactive exploration-based settings.
