Patsy Rausch is a visual arts teacher at Kincaid Elementary in Cobb County, Georgia. In 2016, she instituted an innovative, district-wide STEAM-Integrated Portable Papermaking Studio. The studio is one of the National Collaborators of the Peace Paper Project and is the only portable paper studio in Georgia. The papermaking studio has been highlighted in The Atlanta-Journal Constitution and GAEA Collage Magazine, as well as a STEAM-focused exhibit in the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art.

Patsy coaches Visual Arts, Science, and STEM/STEAM teachers how to incorporate the portable paper studio in their school’s curriculum, not only as an Arts Integration device but as an opportunity to share the craftsmanship and traditions of hand papermaking in history as well as contemporary paper arts. She has presented and workshopped at GAEA, Cobb County STEMapaloosa, as a resident artist at Alfred University, and as an FDH panelist at The Robert C. Williams Paper Museum at Georgia Tech. 

 

Patsy’s personal works incorporate photography, paper arts, collage, and printmaking to produce large mixed media pieces on canvas and in sculptural form. Her work in papermaking and photography has been included in “Art of the Art Teacher” at the Mableton Arts Center, The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, M2R Fence Art Gallery, and The Art Station in Kennesaw.
