Angela Baker, LEAP Program Art Instructor
Angela teaches with established Bay Area arts organizations such as LEAP, ArtSpan, and Youth in Arts. She has taught at Sunnyside for eight years and is an integral member of our community. She teaches in all 18 of Sunnyside’s classrooms once a week for one hour, for ten consecutive weeks.
"I love the diverse community and felt a lot of support for the arts. I feel incredibly fortunate to have been there for so long. It’s a rare and great opportunity to establish connections and watch the children grow and mature over time."
She recently completed her Arts Integration Specialist certificate, a wonderful program for sparking both creativity and critical thinking in students.
Angela encourages students to explore a variety of art mediums such as painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture while often making connections to art history.
In addition, Angela is an exhibiting painter whose work has been showcased in both group and solo shows in the US and abroad.
