As an author, educator and artist, Erica Weisz creates and implements programming for schools, libraries, and book industry audiences using art to facilitate learning.
As art programming has declined in schools, Erica recognizes the need to supplement the art curriculum. Libraries and schools find Erica Weisz’s programs fill the void in their students’ art experience.
In her student-centered interactive workshops, Mrs. Weisz differentiates the material to suit each students’ needs and to reach higher order thinking. Through drawing, writing, painting, and discussion, students take a journey through the creative and artistic process of writing and illustrating.

“The Illinois Holocaust Museum hosted Mrs. Weisz for a family program, and it was a rousing success! Families gathered for a reading of her book A Thousand and One Words, and her expressive language and clever illustrations drew in audience members of all ages. Family members then created art projects exploring body language, emotions, and empathy. Mrs. Weisz created a lively, engaging environment for families to interact and have fun, with lots of learning along the way. It was a terrific afternoon for everyone!”
-Amanda Friedeman, Illinois Holocaust Museum
