Diana MacKenzie

Diana MacKenzie, The Public Art Program Educator at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art since 2007, designs on-site and off-site programs and workshops which help children and adults discover their instinctive artistic abilities. She has a BFA in Printmaking from Syracuse University and lately she is busy filling her sketchbook with inspiration from her recent trip to Japan.

The mission of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, a non-profit organization in Amherst, MA, is to inspire a love of art and reading through picture books. The only full-scale museum of its kind in the United States, The Carle collects, preserves, presents, and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world. In addition to underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form, The Carle offers educational programs that provide a foundation for arts integration and literacy.  Visit The Museum’s website at http://www.carlemuseum.org.
