Pat Rooker

Crew Instructor

Your Instructor: Pat started her love of teaching art beginning in 1989 as a graduate assistant at Bowling Green State University where she started out teaching Art 101 & 102, working in the 3-Dimensional Arts Department as an assistant and also as a Ceramics tutor and technical assistant. Between 2005-2007 she moved from BGSU’s main campus to Firelands College in Huron, Ohio where she became an adjunct instructor and taught courses on Enameling on Metal.  2010-2012 Pat taught Western Art I & II, Introduction to Art and Introduction to Humanities online through Firelands College. 

Pat was awarded a Public Art Commission in collaboration with fellow enamelist Marge Meserve in 2010. Together they created a Donor Recognition Wall at Simpson Garden Park in Bowling Green, Ohio.

Pat currently lives in Berlin Heights, Ohio and is excited to share her love of painting, metalwork, sculpture and ceramics. 

Pat’s Teaching Philosophy:

I work to help people find their personal aesthetic - outcomes that reflect who they are as a budding artist and I hope to instill in them the understanding that while the outcome of a project is great it is the process where personal growth happens. Process over product - at least in the beginning - is what is important…Less judging and more doing, joyfully!
