Maya Alkateb-Chami has always been fascinated by the arts. That’s what led her from her home in Syria to the School of Education for her M.S.Ed. in Art Education as part of a Fulbright program in 2012. The program attracted Alkateb-Chami because it didn’t just focus on the visual arts, unlike many other programs, since her focus was in community art programs and projects.
“The Art Education program at IU was flexible enough to allow me to explore community arts and the non-profit space, in addition to learning more about the history of the field,” Alkateb- Chami said.
