About Lynn Sondag

Lynn taught her first course at Dominican in the Fall of 2002. Five and a half years later, she began teaching full time and chairing the Department of Art, Art History, and Design. In each of her courses there is a guiding premise to provide students with experiences that develop both intellectual and intuitive skills such as visual literacy, creative inquiry, and craftsmanship. Students learn from a dynamic range of individual and collaborative exchanges between artists, artwork, and audience, in order to discover personal and alternative points of view.
