Stephanie Silverman '00 Named RISD Art + Design Educator Award Winner
The Alumni Awards Committee of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Alumni Association Leadership Council recently named Stephanie Silverman '00, Archmere's Art Department Chair and Art Teacher, the recipient of the 2021 RISD Art + Design Educator Award. This award is one of the highest offered by the Alumni Association, and honors alumni who have distinguished themselves as educators.
The award recognizes alumni "who demonstrate exceptional skills as an educator or a clear commitment to the field of art education, and are recognized by their peers and students as having shown those qualities that most encourage students to learn and thrive creatively." The selection process included a call to all RISD alumni for nominations, after which the Alumni Awards committee reviewed and selected the finalists in each category. Mrs. Silverman is invited to attend the RISD Reunion + Commencement Weekend in June 2022 to accept the award.
