Overview of My Career as an Educator in Studio Art and Educational Development

My experience as a college educator in art, teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels, began in 1975. My expertise includes writing and teaching studio courses in painting, drawing, anatomy, drawing concepts, multimedia concepts, curriculum development and faculty development. My approach to teaching art has consistently incorporated studio course content with content in related studies in the Humanities.

I was awarded a Research Faculty Development Fund Grant by the New School University, where I taught at Parsons School of Design from 1975 to 2001. I have served on the Governance Committee of Parsons School of Design in the establishment of both admissions policies and curriculum content. I developed the Foundation Program at the Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles and at Altos de Chavon, La Escuela de Diseño, Dominican Republic when they became attached to the New School University.

At both The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Graduate Program, Philadelphia and at S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo Graduate School of Fine Art and Undergraduate School of Fine Art I was hired not only to teach, but also with the specific mission of developing the curriculum; including writing new courses; and I also wrote specialized bibliographies for both departments. The latter included a Bibliography of Art and Literary Theory and Criticism, arranged in historical, chronological order [from Aristotle to the present] and a similarly organized Bibliography of Narrative Film for Visual Art Students [beginning early twentieth century film].

From 1986 to 2001 I taught on the Graduate Faculty of the Bank Street College of Education/Parsons School of Design Collaborative Master’s Degree Program, in which I specialized in the educational training of teachers and administrators of art programs ranging from the elementary school, middle school and high school levels through graduate level studies.

My career as a professional artist began in 1973, and since then I have had numerous solo exhibitions primarily in New York and also nationally and internationally. My work is included in the Permanent Collections of many museums and public as well as private collections. In addition to exhibition catalogue texts, reviews and articles on my work have been published with frequency in journals such as Art in America, ARTFORUM, ARTnews, ARTS and Tema Celeste among others. Further information including my complete curriculum vitae and reproductions of my work are available on my website: STEPHANIEROSE-ARTS.COM. A recently published Wikipedia pages gives a fine overview of my work and my career from 1963 to the present.
