Anthony DeRosa (Introduction to Pottery)

Anthony grew up in the rural farming town of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania and spent most of his youth fishing, hiking, hunting and camping with his family and friends.   He has always been intrigued by nature and so it was no surprise to him that he found his calling in clay. Throughout history ceramics has been a vital part of the human experience and Anthony often finds inspiration in the pots of ancient cultures.  He tries to use as many materials straight from nature as he can including clays, wood and plant ashes, and oxides to maintain a sort of primitive aesthetic in his pots.   His work has been exhibited across the United States and you can find him selling his wares under his claylias Mud Monkey Pottery.   He is currently studying Art Education at Slippery Rock University and will continue to teach folks art after graduation. When he is not busy studying or working in the studio, he enjoys hanging out with his dog Obi.

Betsy Marsch

Betsy Marsch (Oil Painting)

Betsy Marsch is an artist specializing in oil painting and portraiture, though she does work in a variety of media, including watercolor, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, and sculpture. She currently lives and works in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania.

Betsy holds a Bachelor of Arts in painting and visual aesthetics from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. Her minor was in philosophy, which with aesthetics forms a convenient bridge between academic research and studio practice. Her work is primarily with portraiture and the human figure, but academic interests often direct her projects into more varied channels. Her intent is to pursue graduate work in art history within the next few years.

Vincent Anastasi

Vince Anastasi (Writing Poetry)

Since elementary school, the power of words to frame and articulate personal expression in new and unexpected ways has been the study and hobby of Vincent Anastasi.  It began with early encounters with Dr. Seuss and personal parodies of pop tunes.  By the time high school arrived, he was working on original songwriting projects, releasing his first album in 1994.  Since then, he has continued to write poetry and music, releasing four additional albums of original music, including At the In Between under contract with record label, Tate Music Group, in 2012.  As a teacher, he has taught creative writing classes as well as courses that focus on the formal study of poetry both in the public school setting and privately.  He firmly believes that life is full of poetry, if only we will slow down enough to find it.  Mr. Anastasi resides in Grove City, PA with his wife, Sarah, and six children.
