Lea Friesen has an MFA in Printmaking from Illinois State University. She works with many populations, including: children and the elderly, developmentally disabled adults, teens, college students, and mentally ill adults. In 2014 Friesen began teaching in a secure juvenile detention unit and a residential program for youth. Friesen’s focus in her art classes is on building a studio atmosphere of non-judgement. She values art as a mindful practice and tries to bring that to her students’ experience.
