Raye Leith K'78 celebrated the opening of her new studio in Washington D.C. on March 24.
Leith graduated from Kirkland College with a degree in Studio Arts in 1978. She continued her art education and earned a Master of Fine Arts in 1982. Since then she has taught every age group at every venue, from elementary schoolers to the aged, and from homeless shelters to universities. She currently teaches at the University of Maryland at College Park—graduate and undergraduate students in costume-, lighting- and set- design students. Her task is to present complicated subject matter while also being charged with “loosening their drawings up”.
