Lizzie Wright

Lizzie is from South Louisiana and taught art there in both New Orleans and Acadiana. She holds an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University and a BA in Painting and Media Studies from the Claremont Colleges. During college, Lizzie interned as a Wilderness Ranger for the US Forest Service in California’s Angeles National Forest where she designed and facilitated a wilderness classroom for children. After graduate school, she worked as a carpenter building displays for historic artifacts at the New-York Historical Society. Lizzie has twelve years of teaching experience.  Most recently, Lizzie taught woodshop, ceramics, and glass arts to students grades three to eight. Lizzie enjoys sharing her love of materials with students.

As a professional artist, Lizzie maintains her own contemporary art practice and has exhibited her work widely. She was a founding member of Essex Flowers, an artist-run space in the Lower East Side. Her work has been reviewed by various publications including the New Yorker and New Art City. 

Lizzie is currently enrolled in Cincinnati Montessori Secondary Teacher Education Program’s Introduction to Montessori Secondary Education, along with their course on Montessori Philosophy and Methodology.

“Engaging in a creative practice is like stepping into another dimension. I believe a good teacher lays a strong foundation that can foster lifelong independent creative inquiry.”
