As a professional Art Educator, Meredith Chernick has experience working in a wide variety of media; silverpoint, printmaking, paper sculpture, pastels, lampworked and fused glass, but clay is her medium of choice.
“I have dedicated the past twenty-five years to educating artists and I am overjoyed at finally being able to commit some time to my own artistic endeavors.”
Meredith began taking pottery classes as a young child, and never stopped. She took lessons at the Belleuve Art Museum, where she later returned via the Artist Progam to give demonstrations. Meredith spent years taking pottery classes at the Kelsey Creek Pottery Studio where she later returned as an instructor, and grew the program. Meredith then moved on to teach in the Bainbridge Island School District and found her true calling teaching at the college level for the Northwest College of Art and Design, where she continues to inspire students and push their skills in both two and three dimensional media.
Meredith’s work ranges between functional ware with intentional design and decorative sculpture with a meticulous attention to detail.
‘Finding that elusive balance between life, art, carreer and family is indeed a challenge, but what a fantastic thing to attempt.”
When she is not teaching college students or neighborhood kids, potting in her studio, or working on community enrichment projects, Meredith can be found walking on the beach with her hubby, two kids, and five dogs.
