Meet Our Tutors
Hello! My name is Clare. This is my first year as a graduate student in the Art History MA program. I am from Ohio but have lived in Colorado for the past few years where I have worked in museums in the areas of collections management, curatorial research and writing, and education. In my free time, I enjoy reading, trying new recipes, and traveling. Although I have not traveled much these last few years, in the past I studied abroad in London to complete a nineteenth-century art history course and most recently I spent eight months traveling throughout Mexico and Central America. I’m thrilled to be a tutor this semester and I can’t wait to meet you!
