Hey! I'm John David Berdahl! I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts, Studio Arts and Drawing from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2012.
I was also diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2014.
I have been a teaching artist and a valued member of the downtown Fargo's Plains Art Museum's staff.
I have partnered, collaborated and volunteered with Minnesota State University Moorhead, the Ann Arbor Art Center, Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists, the North Dakota Autism Center, Plains Art Museum, HeartSprings Community Healing Center, Ink for Autism Fargo-Moorhead, VSA of North Dakota and The Arts Partnership to promote art education, creative inclusion and acceptance of persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
I have been a teaching artist in residence at the Anne Carlsen Center of Fargo, and a special needs adviser and curator for the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists.
Currently, I reside in Fargo, North Dakota, am a studio artist, teach for VSA of North Dakota, Moorhead Area Public Schools - Community Education, the Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity, and I tutor individuals and groups privately, as needed, who seek to become more adept at expressing themselves in a more artistic and stylish manner.
