Meet the Faculty: Malaika Zweig Latty

By Malaika Zweig Latty, Ryman Arts Master Teaching Artist

Growing up surrounded by artists, I have been creating artworks all my life. I started very early as a teaching assistant for my stepdad. I was fourteen when the art school where he taught asked me to be his assistant. I felt immediately comfortable teaching with him. To me, teaching was being another set of eyes, helping each art student to see what they were doing.
