Ms. Amy Benfer
Welcome to the Art Department at Cumberland Regional High School. I am excited to work with your student this semester and inspire your student to grow artistically. I enjoy encouraging the artists to broaden their own artmaking processes and experiences through project-based learning while strengthening their own visual literacy. Our art shows are a highlight of the semester (January and May) where students showcase their talents and you are invited to attend.
I am a teaching artist with 17 years of experience in California and New Jersey. As a mixed-media artist who creates two-dimensional works of collage, drawing, and photography, three-dimensional works of artist books and assemblage pieces, to moving digital images with audio in installation, I continue to create, exhibit and learn for my own artistic practice, which naturally influences art-making opportunities in the classroom.
