MA in Art Education, NSCAD University.


Sadie Bills is an artist and educator currently working towards her Master of Arts in Art Education at NSCAD University. Her visual work contemplates connection and belonging between self and environment through care-full embodied practices of sewing, weaving, and printmaking. Sadie's thesis work at NSCAD reimagines conventional art instruction's emphasis on individual outcomes and explores the potential of community-based art education as a site for radical collectivity and togetherness. Her research looks for connections between socially engaged art practices, experiential learning pedagogies, and facilitation techniques, which she will apply to a workshop series called Art Picnic at The Deanery Project, NS this summer 2021. Sadie received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 2015 with a concentration in visual art and creative writing. She was born in New York City, grew up in Northern California, and currently lives in Kjipuktuk/Halifax.
