About the artist

Bob Sander, based in Indianapolis, specializes in the art of storytelling. A practitioner since the early 1980s, he has been been working with students through Arts For Learning for more than 20 years. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Indiana University, where he studied under the writer Scott Sanders. When working with students, Bob tells folktales, personal and family stories, literary and historical tales, and presents workshops and residencies on a variety of story-related topics. Bob has been the recipient of the Frank Basile Emerging Stories Grant and the Arts Council of Indianapolis Creative Renewal Grant, and he spent 13 years as the resident storyteller for the Indianapolis Museum of Art. “I think regular exposure to storytelling is a powerful way to open up and understand many other areas of curriculum,” Bob said. “It’s a tool to deepen students’ appreciation for other cultures, and it is a means to broaden students’ understanding of themselves.” To learn more about Bob, visit his website.
