Leah Parkhurst

Leah Parkhurst is a surface designer, art historian and educator with a creative approach. No matter the technique, location or classroom, her educational philosophy remains the same – offer students the tools to develop their own voice in both art and beyond. When not making her own work or teaching as a creative instructor, Leah can be found cycling, cleaning a sewing machine or thrifting. She earned her master’s degree in Business Design and Arts Leadership from Savannah College of Art and Design.
