Kelly Moe-Rossetto earned her M.A in Art Education with a Minor in International Education and Education Abroad from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. She received her Post Baccalaureate Art Education License at University of Wisconsin and is in her third year as a K-8 Art Teacher in Milwaukee Public Schools.
Mrs. Moe-Rossetto has worked in education for over a decade, in France, Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as attending classes and art workshops in Italy, Sweden, India, Peru and Guatemala. Her Master’s thesis, Crafting a New Community: An Inquiry into the Role Tradition, Education, and Folk Arts Can Play in Creating Culturally Inclusive Spaces, takes a close look at the way we can explore issues of history, place and community through the artistic traditions, both current and historic of a place. She is the owner of a socially responsible textile company, Cardamom Collective, which uses the traditions of textiles and craft along the silk road to connect and understand the way we have influenced each other throughout history and across continents.
In her classroom, she strives to create a dynamic and supportive space. She is committed to creating a culturally inclusive curriculum rooted in social justice and global art, in an effort to assist students in finding their own voice so that they may join the larger community of artists in the world.
