Arts Teacher Pushes Students to Color outside the Lines


Nass, Shannon M, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Throughout her career in education, Carey McDougall of Beaver said she has received much support to experiment with different ways of teaching, engaging her students, and innovative pedagogy.

Now she hopes to provide the same support to other faculty through her new position as director of academic affairs and associate professor of art at Penn State Beaver.

"I feel like I am in a good position to give that same kind of support to faculty to be able to flourish in that same way and similarly to flourish within their research and within their service to the university," she said.

Ms. McDougall assumed her new position on July 1. She replaced Donna J. Kuga, who has been appointed interim chancellor following the June 30 retirement of Chancellor Gary B. Keefer.

Ms. McDougall comes from Kent State University at Stark in North Canton, Ohio, where she served as an associate professor of art. During her 10 years at the university, she also served as assistant professor of art; graduate faculty member in the College of the Arts; coordinator of service-learning; Faculty Council chair; Provost Fellow; coordinator of the Women's Studies minor; and regional campus advisor for the Women's Studies program.

She received the 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award and served on numerous academic, professional and budget committees and councils.

Previous positions included the Catron Professor of Art at Washburn University in Topeka, Kan., an instructor in the Women's Studies Department and School of Fine Arts at the University of Connecticut Storrs Campus in Storrs, Conn., and an instructor of art at Sacred Heart University, in Fairfield, Conn.

Throughout her career, Ms. McDougall has taught a variety of courses, including sculpture, drawing, 2-D and 3-D composition, performance art, and women's studies.

She has curated or co-curated a variety of exhibits and her art has been featured in almost 40 solo and group exhibits in Ohio, Indiana, Connecticut, New York, California, Missouri, Maine, Pennsylvania, and Bulgaria. She has presented numerous professional papers in Finland, New Mexico, Illinois, California, Georgia, Maryland, Connecticut, and Florida.

Born and raised in Woodbury, Conn., Ms. McDougall said she has always been interested in art, but chose to initially pursue a math degree at the prompting of her mother. …
