Christopher Engel's immersion in the arts began when he was a child growing up in the theater and surrounded by the art of his parents. One of his earliest memories is standing in his father's studio mesmerized by the palettes, brushes and paints. "My exposure to my parents multi-media experimental theater pieces, which included poetry, film, photographs, paintings, sculpture and sound compositions, was my early education in the arts," says Christopher. He began exhibiting his work in the mid 1980's in NYC and continued to have exhibits in Paris, Buenos Aires, NYC and the East End. Engel has been a Visual Arts Teacher for over 30 years in New York City and on the East End, and is currently Director of Community Programs at the Ross School in East Hampton, NY. He has worked with children with special needs at the NYC Foundling Hospital Pediatrics Center, designing and implementing the first Expressive Arts Program. As Arts & Education Coordinator for the City of New York Parks & Recreation, he designed, developed and taught programs in Visual Arts, Creative Writing and Dramatics as well as facilitated Science/Environmental programs for inner city children. As Director of the Youth Environmental Science Society, an offshoot of Friends of Fishes, he ran environmental education programs. Engel also collaborated with The American Museum of Natural History/The Rose Science Center and facilitated Astronomy workshops. He has also run Creative Arts Programs & Workshops in the Hamptons at The Child Development Center of the Hamptons (CDCH), The Charter School, The Tuller School, the Children's Museum of the East End, Art House, and Ross School.
