Anyone who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new. ~ Albert Einstein

Julie Van Dewark is the Visual Arts Resource Teacher at Trace Elementary School in San Jose. This summer, she begins her lucky 13th year as an arts educator working (and making art) with students and teachers in Santa Clara County public schools.

Julie says, "I don’t always like making mistakes, but I do like trying new things. I’ve often learned more and have gotten better results when I’ve taken a risk and dealt with the unknown."
