    Instructor: Rachel Grobstein  show bio

Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions nationally. She is the recipient of a full fellowship and residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Sitings Prize for a site-specific installation at the RISD Museum, a Montague International Travel Grant and a Graduate Fellowship.

    Instructor: Paul Shore  show bio

    Paul Shore received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has exhibited his work in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston and has taught at Williams College, Hartford Art School, Marlboro College and Penland School of Crafts. Art residency fellowships have included MacDowell Colony, Ragdale Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and Blue Mountain Center. In regards to teaching, Shore says, “in executing successful work head and hand must work together. I aim at developing both concurrently within each student. Conceptual development is nurtured along with technical and formal instruction. I dispel the notion of following “the right way” in favor of placing the emphasis on finding one’s way.”
