GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 10, 2019) – Emma Hartman joined the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Division of Art and Design in the School of Fine Arts and Communication.

Hartman earned a BFA in studio art from BJU in 2015. She received an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where she was awarded multiple academic scholarships.

While at SCAD, Hartman served as a summer workshop instructor for high school students and as a graduate teaching assistant for college freshmen in the Atlanta area. She led a class of young students through applied visual thinking strategies as a summer teaching artist at the High Museum of Art. For several summers, she served as a painting teacher at Vinings School of Art in Smryna, Georgia, where she worked with both youth and adult painters.

Recently, Hartman worked as a Museum and Gallery (M&G) education coordinator for elementary and middle schools in the Greenville County School District on a monthly basis. The M&G art outreach programs—Museum on the Move, U.Day exhibit, Homeschool Days and Kid’s Create art camps—educate over 12,000 children annually.

“Emma is an amazing artist, and we are excited for our students to study under her,” said Dr. Darren Lawson, dean of BJU’s School of Fine Arts and Communication. “She also brings with her a background as an education coordinator for M&G, which will further enhance her studio teaching.”
