Art Partners Studio appoints Teresa Salinas as Interim Director

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Teresa Salinas as the Studio’s Interim Director, starting this August.

Teresa is respected and familiar to all in our community—for many, she is the face of the Art Partners Studio. From her earliest days in 2011 as an art assistant for summer camp to her recent 2013-2014 position as Program Administrator, her support of our mission, enthusiasm, fierce intelligence, and ability to “get things done” have been among the Studio’s greatest assets.

Over the past year, her responsibilities have grown well beyond greeting everyone at the door plus other administrative tasks to include financial and database record-keeping, program development, promotion, public relations, and liaison with artists, teens and volunteers.

She is also a highly regarded teaching artist—leading a teen photography class and camera club. In 2014, she initiated our first teen mentoring program—providing academic and portfolio preparation support for two of the Studio’s teens who are ready to start college this September.

Teresa received her B.A. in Visual Arts with a concentration In Photography from Fordham University, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2013. While at Fordham, she volunteered as a teacher for the Adult & Youth Education programs at Phipps West Farms Technology & Career Center in the Bronx and served as the Photography Editor for the University’s Undergraduate Research Journal.

I hope you will all welcome her as the Studio's Interim Director.

Thank you, Kirstin Wentz McElroy, President
