- Mature Learning
Art instructor Lisa Staley has been a part-time member of the Clark College faculty since 2001, currently teaching art history and art appreciation.
Her teaching has been strongly influenced by her travels in Europe – including three residencies in Austria. She is currently working on a doctorate degree in art history at the University of Salzburg. While Lisa herself is passionate about art, she recognizes that not everyone is – but believes that art can be used to create greater understandings of self and the world around us. “I use the teaching of art to help students realize that we have things in common with people we hear about on the news – that we have things in common with the people of other countries, times and cultures.”
