9:1 Faculty-to-Student Ratio

With a student-faculty ratio of 9:1 and the average class size of just 12, you are more than just a number at UHart. Through regularly scheduled office hours, and working alongside students in research projects—they are here to help you succeed.

One of the really cool things about teaching at the Hartford Art School is meeting first-year students, then working with them again for a few consecutive years. There's no greater pleasure for me than to see artwork emerge from a student.

"I love helping students find their identity as musicians. I help my students find out who they are, how they play, and what they want to do."

Taking students to Spain to visit social enterprise businesses and to experience the culture, languages, and food is one of the highlights of my year.
