Barbara Marder

Formally educated in painting, Barbara discovered vitreous enamel in a public high school teaching context in 1980. Through her work as a visual arts educator, she found a way to connect with her students from all different backgrounds and developed a unique and experiential curriculum that stood out. Post-retirement, she continues to express her love for color through her own work with paint in traditional watercolor and enameled jewelry. Here at Artisan’s Asylum she achieves her personal and professional goals: she regularly holds a watercolor painting class as well as a Glass Enamel on Copper Weekend Workshop and can often be seen honing her metalsmithing in the Jewelry Shop at Artisan’s.
