Adriyah Smart joined the Augusta Mini Theatre as the Visual Arts Teacher in the fall of 2021. A New Jersey/New York Native, she has made Augusta her home to raise her family. She received her MA in Fine Arts Education at Kean University, New Jersey. Adriyah’s teaching style focuses on process and the art-making experience over the finished result. It is one that allows the student to lead their art journey through exploration and experimentation. For Adriyah, it is important that the student develops their voice as an Artist and finds their Artistic identity rather than just creating aesthetically pleasing pieces.
She provides supportive guidance to each student she works with, so that they may develop creatively in their own unique way.
