We would like to welcome FSU alumnus Dr. Zerric Clinton to the Department of Art Education!
Dr. Zerric Clinton joins the department as an adjunct professor in the Department of Art Education. Dr. Clinton received his BFA in Art Education and his Master’s Degree in Educational; Leadership from Valdosta State University. In 2010 he received his PhD in Art Education from Florida State University. Currently, he teaches art education at Cairo High School. His research focuses on the way that visual culture influences adolescents. Dr. Clinton has presented annually at state and national art conferences over the past few years. Presently, he is working on a collaborative project called Breaking BAD; Breaking Boundaries Through Awareness and Dialogue with the Museum of Tolerance, New York. This project connects two vastly different schools and facilitates dialogue to break down stereotypes and prejudice. Students from each school communicate throughout the semester on issues related to tolerance, human rights, human trafficking, and bullying prevention. The dialogue between the students is based on the MOTNY’s exhibits and resources.
We thank Dr. Clinton for providing us with information on his current work and look forward to hearing more in the future.
