Clara Lieu

“I am the founder of Art Prof, and currently a Partner. From 2007-2020, I taught as an
 Adjunct Professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, teaching in Illustration, Printmaking, Foundation Studies, and Painting. For 7 years, I taught at RISD Project Open Door, a free college access program for urban teens in RI in the department of Teaching + Learning in Art + Design and in the RISD Pre-College Program. In the past I have taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, at Wellesley College, and at the Lesley University College of Art and Design

I wrote Ask the Art Prof, an advice column for visual artists in the Huffington Post. I have written articles for the New York TimesEducation Week, Artist’s Magazine, and my artwork has been published in the British Journal of Psychiatry and in The Figure: Contemporary Perspectives. I was the Director of the
Jewett Gallery for three years where I curated, organized, and installed both professional and student exhibitions. I have traveled to Guangzhou, Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, and Vancouver to lecture and teach workshops. 

I have done faculty training and lectures at Brown University, the RISD Museum, Simmons College, the Cape Ann Art Museum, the Fitchburg Art Museum, the National Art Education Association conference, the Attleboro Museum of Art, and more.

Exhibitions & Collections
Exploring the extremities of human emotion, I use the human figure as a vehicle for expression in multiple techniques in drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. My artwork has been exhibited at the
International Print Center New York, Bromfield Gallery, the Danforth Museum of Art, Mark Miller Gallery, the Currier Museum of Art, Childs Gallery, and the Davis Museum. My prints are in the collection of the Hood Museum of Art and the Barbara and David Stahl collection.

Grants & Press
I have received artist grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the
Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and the Puffin Foundation. Art Prof has been profiled in Art New England, WBUR, Hyperallergic, Two Coats of Paint, WCVB-TV’s Chronicle, and Artscope Magazine.”
