Suzanne Horwitz

Suzanne is a second-generation artist who has produced a diverse body of sculpture ranging from intimate portraits to large installations and public sculpture. The human figure and its parts are the basis of her visual expression. The body in art and sculpture has survived as the central means through which to express what it is to be human.

Suzanne’s teaching style:

As a studio artist she devotes part of her career to education and develops new course ideas to build on existing ones. She teaches her students to see geometrically, elevating each student to a new level. There are many technical and material skills to learn in sculpture, but the results are always worth the challenge. Her goal is to create more sculptors!

Suzanne loves EAC because . . .

The opportunity to teach and help her students grow has been valuable to her.
