Meet an SBMA Art Instructor!

Featured this Month: Gundega Penikis

By: Jennifer Talvensaari

Gundega is a true gem.

One of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever had the opportunity to talk to and interact with. Gundega is a ceramics instructor here at SBMA and she LOVES her job, as you will find out!

If I walked into your art classroom, what should I expect to see?

Well…Ceramics! It is a very big room; lots of space. There are many large tables for my students to spread out and work on as well as numerous potter’s wheels. It’s a beautiful and well-equipped studio space.

Be sure to check out Amy’s new lesson for art teachers titled Ex-Techy, Insecty, ReCreatures. It’s a great way to integrate science and art and it makes wonderful use of old machine parts, deconstructed electronics, and other found objects.
