Artforms & Experience


Briana Linden has been a leader in arts/culture/education non-profits since 1997; prior to that she was a preschool teacher. She now helps organizations develop creative programming, teaches arts integrated residencies, and leads educator workshops and arts education professional development all around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Through social practice, encaustic, printmaking, drawing and photography, Briana draws upon the big ideas within the arts. In professional development and classroom teaching, Briana demonstrates how creative approaches to teaching and learning not only give students the tools they need to be the leaders of tomorrow, but also the essential elements to make their own learning meaningful now. Briana is a firm believer in arts-rich instruction as a way to engage all learners rooted in the idea that every child deserves creative and dynamic access to learning. She believes the arts reveal a love of learning innate in all of us.
A practicing artist, Briana works in visual and social practices. In 2016, she co-founded Motherist, a social practice experiment in artmaking between mother/artists and their children in which children’s ideas spur the creative process. She draws every day as a mindfulness project in seeing and knowing the world through the language of stillness, observation and line.
