Ana Maria Economou is a teaching artist working in Baltimore City. She received her B.F.A. in Ceramics from Alfred University. Ana Maria’s time in the MAIAI program expanded her understanding of the social emotional benefits of art making and how they can benefit her students in and out of the classroom. With a greater understanding of how the arts can support and serve communities, Ana Maria continues to build and support connection through clay.
