About the Instructor
Lio Olin received his MFA from the State University of New York, and his dual major in Fine Arts/ Humanities from Bennington College. His art and poetry are driven by an emotional history, from various environments and relationships. His practice represents the way our senses are heightened when we are involved in a relationship or engaged in a particular psychological space. Lio's approach to teaching is grounded in skill-based techniques as a means of problem-solving and seeing the world around us. He uses this foundation to engage interdisciplinary and contemporary practices, encouraging students to consider the social and conceptual implications of their work as they develop practical skills. He is thrilled to be a part of the Studio Art Program at the Museum.
