About the Instructor

Shauna Caldwell is an artist from Boone, NC. Her roots in Appalachia and her relationship with the environment shape her creative work. She uses artistic processes that connect her to her home, such as making paper and photographic emulsions with local plants, to discuss themes of sacred relationships and transformation. She received her BFAs in Studio Art and Art Education and is currently pursuing a MA in Appalachian Studies at Appalachian State University.

Sarah Jayne Kennelly is currently in her senior year at Appalachian State University where she is studying art education. Her work examines the relationships between people, the construct and development of place and home, and the function and influence of our memories. She has found a deep connection to photography and printmaking, using them to dissect these ideas and explore the human experience.
