Hi! I’m Cindy Ingram.
I have the awkward habit of crying in front of artworks, and I want the rest of the world to do it too. This noble quest has culminated in the creation of Art Class Curator, where I share how to creatively teach art appreciation and art history in a way that will spark a lifelong love of art.
I have more than fifteen years of experience in schools, museums, and non-profit organizations. I have an MA in Art Education and a BA in Art History. I had the honor of being a Marcus Fellow, a fellowship dedicated to arts leadership from the North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts. In addition to working in museums and teacher professional development, I have had the privilege of teaching art in the classroom to all grades–elementary to college.
I live in Dallas, Texas, with my awesome science nerd husband and two zany, lovely daughters (ages 5 and 8). I love traveling–to visit favorite and new museums and galleries and art history sites, of course–in the US and abroad, and am midway through a 10-year plan to take my family on a grand art education adventure around the world.
To date, I have not yet made any of my students cry (knowingly), but there is still time.
