Kristina Sansone

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 her 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. She 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.
