Stefanie joined CAW in early 2017, working first as a Teaching Artist and then as a member of the Development team before moving into her current role as Program Coordinator.
Prior to joining CAW, Stefanie taught at the Whitney Museum of American Art; planned and taught an afterschool Feminist Art Club for public high school students in Baltimore; was the Program Coordinator for City Art Lab, a free program for teens at the City College of New York (CCNY); and spent years volunteering with Free Arts NYC. She earned her MA in Art Education from CCNY in 2016 and holds a BA in Psychology and Art/Art History from the College of William and Mary.
Stefanie is also a practicing artist, illustrator, knitter, and amateur whittler. Her drawings have been shown at Brouwerij Lane in Brooklyn and at the CCNY Art Education Graduate Student Art Show, and she has designed invitations, brochures, posters, and album covers for a variety of clients. She is currently illustrating her first children’s book.
In addition to passionately advocating for arts education wherever she goes, Stefanie enjoys hiking and camping, riding her bicycle around the city, rooting for the Mets, and talking about her cat, Captain Augustus (Gus) McCrae. She used to play drums in a feminist punk band and if she were not an art teacher she would be a cowgirl.
