Tilly’s website



    Tilly Strauss, is a teaching artist and art historian inspired by stories told by a long line of relatives. For several years she has been writing and illustrating a YA art history “text” book that starts at the beginning of time and is based on epochs as experienced by ancestors in the family tree. She just returned from three months teaching art history to high school sophomores in Switzerland.


During this year’s ARTmostNY event

During the ARTmostNY tour I will be working on portraiture in digital illustrations for publication. Each month as part of my series of Tilly’s Ten Sheroes Hidden in History, I research, illustrate and create an 18-page zine and craft a short YouTube art talk. The month of May is all about the German Expressionist painter Paula Modersohn-Becker. I will be turning the research into illustrations on my iPad and laying out the zine pages on Adobe Photoshop.
