Kristina Lamour Sansone is Critic
for the Documentation Design Studio
course in RISD’s Department of Teaching + Learning in Art + Design. Her own learning challenges led Kristina to find
refuge in graphic design, a communication process that connects pictures and
words in one simultaneous language. For over two decades, she has built bridges
between graphic design and teaching and learning, creating applications to
support access, engagement and comprehension in diverse fields such as
documentation as assessment, STEM, English Language Learning and Universal
Design for Learning. Kristina has coached, consulted and presented in a variety
of school contexts including Reggio Emilia inspired and urban public schools.
She is one of the founders of the Boston Green Academy, a Boston public high
school, which has design consciousness as part of its charter.
