Emotional Resilience and Art Education

In addition to facilitating the acquisition of skills and knowledge, teachers help prepare students for academic, professional, and social challenges. In the current climate of increased awareness about the prevalence of mental health struggles, how can positive psychology empower educators in this task?  What can educators learn from each other’s experience in their efforts to teach and support their students?

Speaker: Steven Rudin

Steven Rudin is a visual artist, art educator, and former assistant professor of clinical psychiatry. Rudin reimagines hand-cut paper collage as a metaphor for memory and identity. A blend of precision and whimsy, his multilayered compositions draw viewers into a dialogue about the dynamic nature of the mind.  Rudin’s exhibitions, talks, and classes encourage participants to visualize their inner lives as collage. 

In mid-2017, Rudin made the shift to art full time after nearly two decades in clinical, academic, and leadership positions at Columbia University.  He holds degrees from Columbia University, Cornell University, and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His teaching activities range from course development to group facilitation to direct observation and supervision. Currently, Rudin leads workshops delving into collage as memoir at the Art Students League of New York. He is a frequent guest lecturer in a variety of settings including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design, and the New York Film Academy. His work has been exhibited internationally in galleries, public spaces, and art fairs in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and Cannes.
