Heebner, Katrina

I have been teaching art classes at the Fowler campus since 2019. My work is in a variety of artistic media, specializing in fiber, wood, and paper arts. I graduated from Moravian College with a Bachelor’s degree in Art and Psychology. I’m also a Certified Activity Director and spent 12 years working at a skilled nursing facility providing recreational programs for the elderly. The past few years, I have been exploring the combination of art and technology, such as sewable electronics and using a laser cutter as an art tool.

My teaching philosophy is to encourage students to not be afraid of taking chances and try new techniques. If it doesn’t work, then you’ve still learned something new.
