Programs should migrate and mingle
like guests at a cocktail party.
Classroom facilities, studios, galleries,
offices, shops, and lecture spaces should be
evenly distributed across the field and available to all, including the public, enfolding and educating
the future supporters, benefactors, and collectors
of the community and the art world at large.

A little bit about me, Kayla Wandsnider
I mainly work in photography and ceramics. Film photography is my passion, but in the age of technology, I've slowly started to work with digital more and more. I like to create my work around memory and the passing of time (specifically related to my own life growing up in a small town). Check out some images of my work under my "Fine Art Work" tab located at the top of the page.
I graduated in 2015 from the University of Cincinnati obtaining my Bachelor's of Fine Arts and my liscensure in Art Education from the college of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, and I recently re-enrolled as a graduate student in the Masters of Art in Art Education program within DAAP. I am currently researching the concept of "Care and Education through Reflection" in low-income public schools, such as my own current district.
I have been working full-time as an art educator at a High School in the Cincinnati/ Dayton area for the past three years. I put all of the pedagogical and philosophical inquiry ideas that I have practiced during my time as a student into my classroom. I also encourage my students to follow their own personal autonomy when creating work, and experiement with various mediums/ methods of making art.
