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 artists to broaden their own artmaking processes and experiences through project-based learning while strengthening their own visual literacy. Our art shows highlight our students and showcase their talents and you are invited to attend. We also promote our students’ work virtually on Artsonia.

I am a teaching artist with 18 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's 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.
