October- Tami Zwicke
Saturdays: October 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29: 10 am – 3 pm.


"I fell into art and education.  I do not have the traditional art teacher background and do not teach like a traditional art teacher.  I feel like we can always do more.  We can inspire, create, modify and make art assessable to everyone."  Tami is a well-rounded artist with an extensive background in almost every medium of art.  Her favorite is mixed media and recycled arts and she considers herself an environmental artist who is very expressive. "I like to take things that most people see as trash and make it into something beautiful." She has developed programming for intergenerational art programs, cultural art programming, recycled arts, wearable arts, murals and more. "I like to inspire people to be creative and make things. You can create art out of almost anything.  It is wonderful to show a student how to create art using recycled materials and the student then is inspired to go create at their home."  Tami works regularly for: DanceWorks, Arts@Large, Milwaukee Public Theatre and The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.

About the Program: The Artist in Residence Program is a month-long opportunity for community members to meet and interact with local fine artists. It is a chance for adults and children alike to see an artist at work, watch demonstrations and talk to those artisans about their art, processes and inspirations. It is also an opportunity for local artists to network with the public, and to expand awareness about the arts in general and the work they specifically do. If you would like to learn more about the Artist in Residence program or are interested in serving as the CCC’s Artist in Residence for a one-month span, please contact Arts Education and Exhibits Manager, Jeanette Gabrys at

The Artist in Residence Program and Talent Incubator is made possible through the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Mary L. Nohl Fund, Evan & Marion Helfaer Foundation and the Townsend Foundation.
