Project Description

Molly Cronenwett is an artist, photographer, teacher and mother who lives in Hillsborough. After growing up in Michigan and New Hampshire, she moved to NC in 1997 to earn an MA in Art History from UNC-Chapel Hill and a second BA in Art Education from NCCU. Since migrating south, Molly has taught art and art history to all ages—from preschoolers to adults—at a charter school, at her own community art school in Hillsborough, and through private lessons and camps at her home. She specializes in ceramics, drawing, and painting. As a studio teacher, Molly believes a focus on art history offers students a deeper understanding of art, as well as a catalog of successful imagery and ideas. She wants her students to realize that they are part of an enormous global community of artists—past and present—from whom they can gain inspiration.
