Anthea Black - Assistant Professor Printmedia

Hello First-Gen students! I am a first-gen undergrad from wayyyy back; after finishing my BFA in Drawing and Print in 2003 I was the first person in my family to have a degree! My Dad was a construction worker and my Mum was a mother and community organizer, both were really creative people and gave me their blessing to be an artist. It's been a long path, now I am a professor in Printmedia at CCA and I love opening creative doors for my first-gen students. Looking forward to meet you. You got this!
