Tomas Wolff - Clay
Tomás Wolff is a multi-media artist and arts educator who spent most of his youth in New Mexico. He worked for more than 25 years as a consultant to many schools and social-service agencies in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. There he received numerous grants from federal, state, and local governments and non-profit agencies for community art projects—primarily collaborative mosaic and painted murals involving community artists, inner-city youth and adults. Since moving back to New Mexico, he has continued his involvement in community mural projects by helping to coordinate more than a dozen community art murals, mostly in Mountainair, NM. He has also taught classes in clay, painting, and mosaics at his studio and at schools and community agencies.
Tomás attended the University of New Mexico and New Mexico Tech during the 1960s. He received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Hawaii, where he was stationed while in the U.S. Navy, and a master’s degree in education from Yale University.
He currently lives part time in Mountainair and in Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife, Deborah.
