Penn State Abington offered me an individualized course of study in the visual arts as well as a range of studies to supplement my Bachelor of Art degree.  The opportunity to engage in discussions regarding politics, rhetoric, history, and the sciences with professors from various majors created a solid foundation for an artistic career filled with options.  I credit my art instructors Bonnie Levinthal and Yvonne Love for giving me the capability, ambition, and opportunities to pursue an artistic career.  After graduating from Penn State Abington, I’ve become a participant in an exciting community of Philadelphia artists.  I have held the position of Education Assistant and Visitor Services Representative at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. I have also continued my academic studies to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree.  I am proud to report that I am currently an instructor at several colleges.  I thank Penn State Abington’s instructors for their sincere commitment to me as a student and fellow artist.  I look forward with great enthusiasm to a fulfilling career in the arts.

Penn State Abington offered me the opportunity to study and combine my interests through the Integrative Arts degree. The art faculty members were passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects and also very caring, approachable, and supportive. The studio art courses gave me a strong foundation and helped prepare me for my path in art education.

Penn State Abington’s art program opened my eyes to realize what I was absolutely meant for. During my 4 years at Abington, I was encouraged to reach levels of accomplishment that I never imagined I could reach. The faculty at Abington has provided me with long-term friendships and continued colleague support, and enabled me to enter my field with the confidence and the ability to adapt to all areas of arts education with ease. Thank you, Penn State Abington.
