California native Sarah Repetto brings a lifelong love of art to her Survey and Seminar classes in the Textile Design department. “I was fortunate to be raised around art,” says Sarah, who studied art and art history in college. “I hope that by the end of a course, my students will see the world in a slightly different way.” She also works for the FIDM Museum as Assistant Registrar.
Can you describe a favorite class project?
In the Natural Forms course, the final project allows the students to apply everything they have learned during the past ten weeks, and it is always exciting to see how they have grown and developed in such a short time.
What do you enjoy most about teaching at FIDM?
I enjoy the passionate students who attend FIDM because they have an interest in visual culture. I also enjoy the amount of input faculty are asked to contribute to the writing of assignments and course curriculum.
Do you have a particular philosophy about teaching?
I try to make contemporary comparisons to what I am teaching in class in order to help students relate more to the material. My goal is to help foster a lifelong appreciation for the visual arts.
Sarah Repetto is an Outstanding Faculty Award Winner, an award given by the student body to outstanding faculty members.
