Cynthia is a professional illustrator and fine artist with a passion for teaching. She previously taught both children’s and adult classes at the Creative Workshop from 1994 to 2000 including drawing, watercolor and acrylic focused courses. Cynthia taught in special programs such as Drawing at the Zoo and Art Day School as well during that time.
Cynthia began her instruction in art as a student here at the Creative Workshop when she was a child (she gratefully remembers being rewarded a scholarship). She earned an MA in Studio Art from Marywood University and a BFA in Printmaking with a Certification in Art Education (pre-K to 12th grade) from Novia Scotia College of Art And Design. As a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Artists Breakfast Group, and Just Poets, she continues to refine and exhibit her own work.
Cynthia’s warm, imaginative and patient instruction, along with her skills in making and teaching art have made her a wonderful teacher.
