Academic Accomplishments

MFA California College of the Arts, 1997

Lynn taught her first course at Dominican in the Fall of 2002. Five and a half years later, she began teaching full time and chairing the Department of Art, Art History, and Design. In her teaching, she promotes ways in which the arts are fundamental to our humanity and a key component to a healthy community. Teaching a variety of service-learning art courses, she provides students with opportunities to foster creativity, develop artistry, and have meaningful collaborations with members of the community.

Her top 3 loves of teaching: 

  • mentoring each student to become a skilled and thoughtful artist who can actively engage with and influence their future.
  • increasing access to art and art education through service-learning pedagogy and community-based art projects.
  • creating collaborative cross-disciplinary projects with Dominican colleagues.
