Emmy Bright

Emmy has traverses fields as an arts administrator, teaching artist, board member, art teacher, professor, researcher. In addition to working at New Urban Arts in Providence, Emmy teaches Art Education graduate students at City College New York.

She also was recently a volunteer trainer for Girls Rock Rhode Island and a consultant for the Cloud Foundation in Boston MA. She holds a B.A. in Art History from University of Chicago and an M.Ed from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In other studies, including at Penland School of Crafts and School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she has worked and trained in community radio, papermaking, fiber and material studies, clown/performance, and printmaking. Her creative practice has multiple foci: one eye is in her studio, where she makes prints, drawings, and illuminated paper forms about ideas of loss, language, socialness. She is glad to be a member of Providence’s community of print makers, educators, garden diggers, experience curators, question askers, teenagers, co-learners, and other kin-type folk.
