Career talk by Vermont artist
PUTNEY- Landmark College will present a free, open to the public talk by Vermont artist Jean Cherouny on Sunday, June 24, at 7:30 pm, in the Brooks M. O’Brien auditorium, located in the east academic building.
Cherouny’s talk, entitled “A Gliding Artform,” will describe how learning differences influenced her career and life trajectory, as illustrated by her journey to become a successful artist, entrepreneur, and world traveler.
A Connecticut native, Cherouny first came to Vermont to attend Landmark College shortly after it opened in 1985. She went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and an MFA from Johnson State College. Cherouny is a substitute teacher and ski racing coach for the local school district, and owns Jean Cherouny Fine Art and Design.
The talk takes place on the first day of the 28th annual Landmark College Summer Institute, a four-day conference providing hands-on training workshops and world-class research presentations about teaching students who learn differently, including students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder.
Topics covered during the three-day strands and single sessions, taking place Sunday, June 24 to Wednesday, June 27, include technology supports, college transitions, academic accessibility, and executive function support for thriving in college.
Local educators and parents with an interest in students who learn differently can also register for any of these sessions in advance by visiting www.landmark.edu/LCSI.
