Academic Profile

Michael Mulhern is an artist whose work is engaged with issues of observation, evidence, and the mind’s reconstruction of this information into forms of visual expression. Currently working in drawing and painting, Mulhern has been exhibited in both New York, Boston and most recently at the University of Connecticut at Avery Point.

Mulhern teaches Drawing I, a Core course and other various other drawing courses. In his studio classes he is interested in fostering the development of each individual student’s personal vision utilizing the disciplined techniques of careful observation tempered with the free-associative views of contemporary approaches to drawing.
