Ottilie works in schools educating students about the importance of art and design in everyday life and how it relates to popular culture and media. Her unique projects span kindergarten to Grade 12, from small groups to working with entire schools on mass installations. Ottilie encourages students to develop their own ways of thinking about art and to push beyond their imagined creative limits. Her students develop multi-media projects in paint, sculpture, performance, set, and costume design. Using found objects students are encouraged to understand more about the importance of environmental protection and re-purposing.
