Emily Farbman – Art
B.A. in Art History with Visual Arts Concentration, Barnard College
M.S. in Art Education, Massachusetts College of Art
Emily spent most of her youth growing up outside of Washington, DC. However, it was her formative senior year spent at a tiny American school in Rabat, Morocco that influenced much of her path as a student and educator. She went on to study art, art history, and sociology at Barnard College in New York, though it is a little-kept secret that she initially started as a math major. Several years after graduating, she returned to the Massachusetts College of Art and Design to become an art teacher and has been teaching all forms of art, design, and discovery for the past ten years. In her own art, she is also focused on people, having found no way to depart from the portraits that she always loved to draw and paint from a very young age. She is so excited to have found a school on the scale of her graduating high school where she developed such immediate, intense, and valuable bonds with her classmates and teachers. She encourages her students to continually innovate and create with their endless artistic resources.
