Sonja Fasen

Hi! My name is Sonja Fasen and I have recently relocated here with my family from Brooklyn, NY. I am SO happy to be here in Georgia where it’s green, beautiful and full of friendly people! I’m even happier to be a part of Tapestry as the Visual Arts teacher this year. I hope to influence the creative minds of Tapestry students to express themselves, have fun with their art, and get a little messy along the way.

I am originally from Pennsylvania where I grew up and began my love for the arts. My love for the beach led me to Florida for 7 years. During my time in Florida, I completed my degree and certification in arts education. I also worked as an artist for Universal Studios and taught private art lessons. Before I began teaching in public schools, I traveled through Europe and South America to study the arts and visit every art museum I could. I began my teaching career as an elementary teacher, but I also have experience teaching middle school, high school, and college level classes.

I believe that art is more about the process and less about the product, and that everyone is an artist in their own way. I hope to share my love for the visual arts with the students at Tapestry and to guide them down a path to embrace their inner artist and explore the artistic process.
