Kerry St. Laurent received her BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (2004), and her MFA from the University of Hartford (2006), both with a concentration in painting. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally and she has served as Artist-in-Residence at both Hot Springs and Isle Royale National Parks. In addition to exploring her own creative ideas, she is also currently focused on response work and collaboration with artists of different mediums, specifically writers and musicians.
To gain a broader understanding of administration and pedagogy, she completed her EdD with a concentration in higher and postsecondary education in 2017. Her doctoral research investigated technology integration and higher order skills-building in introductory studio art curricula for non-majors.
