Rondi Silva has created art in a variety of media, including painting, mosaic, collage, and, most recently, ceramics. She studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute and Art History at Hunter College. She comes from a long line of artists; her parents, Pedro Silva and Valerie Falk, are sculptors, and Rondi grew up making things the way most kids grow up playing games or being on sports teams.
After many years of working as a visual arts teaching artist, Rondi found her true passion in teaching humanities to out-of-school youth. She now works as a consultant, coaching school administrators and educators and helping to improve school systems and educational practices across the country. However, she will still seize the opportunity to make art whenever possible, like with this fabulous project!
