Former Students

Over the years I have had many amazing students who have taught me as much or more than I have taught them.  Some have have gone on to start art collectives, others to raise children, practice law, trot the globe taking photographs, pursue doctorates, run start-up enterprises, or shape cities as architects or planners.

 

Below is a list of what some of my students have been up to since graduating.  If you are a former student of mine, please drop me a line to let me know what you are doing.  Help me keep this list updated!  Email -- joseph at newschool dot edu.
