The City of El Cerrito Arts and Culture Commission has selected two artists to fill the El Cerrito Creative ReUse (ECCRU) Artist Residency, beginning November 15, 2019: Kloe Chan and Risa Dye. During their ECCRU residencies, the artists will create artwork using materials found at RERC, conduct workshops or other educational programs, provide an exhibition of artwork created during the residency, and each donate one piece of artwork to the City.
Risa Lenore Anderson Dye is known for her creative energy in teaching and for her engaging puppet shows. Her business, Jelly Jam Time, congeals her passions into a practice of teaching story-dancing and performing puppet shows for young audiences. For years, Risa has been dancing, acting, clowning, creating costumes, stories, sculptures and puppets. She taught preschool and became impassioned by early childhood education. Since 2013 she has been sharing her energetic classes with the greater bay area and her colorful interactive puppet shows with museums, libraries and schools. She plans to bring many more stories to life.
