Andrea DiPalma Yansane
Andrea DiPalma Yansane, has worked as a self-employed freelance artist and arts educator since she graduated from the University of Oregon with a BA in Fine Arts in 1994. This co-founder of West African Cultural Arts Institute and Won Tan Nara Productions has spent close to seven years in Guinea, immersing herself in the art, culture, and way of life. She has trained with many disciplined and visionary artists, performed in a variety of prestigious venues, and collaborated with Alseny Yansane on many artistic projects. Because she is fluent in Susu, Guinea’s national language, Andrea has been able to transcend much of the cultural barrier and gain an appreciation and understanding of the inner workings of Guinean society.
Her teaching style is clear and comprehensive, making learning accessible to all skill levels, ages, and backgrounds. Throughout the Pacific Northwest she is recognized by educators for her creative curriculum development, classroom management skills, and her ability to integrate educational themes with West African Cultural Arts Institute's interactive programs.
