Greetings! My name is Mariana, and I’m so excited to meet you! I’m a California native and a Chicago-based arts educator, and I love working with young people to turn their creative ideas into realities. I currently teach writing and improvised performance to 3rd and 4th graders through Barrel of Monkeys theater, and I devise, sing and perform in various schools and DIY venues throughout the city. On a sunny summer day, you can find me nestled under a tree in a nearby park, strumming my ukulele, doing contact poi and/or munching on cucumbers. I can’t wait to spend this summer sharing our creative passions and learning from one another!
