The Division of Continuing Studies is pleased to announce that Heather Jo Wingate is our new Pre-College Programs + Outreach Coordinator. Wingate joins us from the Delaware Art Museum, where she has been running courses and camps for youth and adults as Studio Programs Manager.|
Wingate has a BFA in Painting/Drawing and an MA in Museum Education from the University of the Arts. She has worked with students and artists of all ages as a teacher, manager and mentor. She has been teaching in Pre-College Programs and the Professional Institute for Educators since 2006. Wingate actively exhibits her artwork at local galleries, boutiques and cafes such as Padlock, Topstitch, Chapterhouse and Amberella.
We also send our best wishes to Rosi Dispensa, former Coordinator and part of the Pre-College team in various capacities since 2004. Dispensa left to pursue her artwork and continue her education, but she will be returning to the classroom this summer to teach Darkroom Photography II in the Pre-College Summer Institute.
