Instructor: Rebekah Hower
I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Lynchburg in 2014 and have been teaching art for over 6 years locally.
I have a bachelors of Science in Art Education, a concentration in ceramics, and just received a Masters degree in Art Education this spring of 2021. I was also able to study art abroad in Florence, Italy while in taking classes in college and would love to go back!
I have been doing art since I was young entering local fairs and spending most of my summers with a paint brush in hand!
I have taught at the Academy both in the pottery and art studios! I even had a gallery show at the academy in 2017! It’s one of my favorite places in Lynchburg!
