We are pleased to announce that Sasha Timen, freelance graphic designer and adjunct instructor in Graphic Design Methods in SOU's Emerging Media and Digital Arts (EMDA) Program is the Best of the Best Director this year. Sasha also holds a M.A.T. from SOU and has worked in local high schools. She will be working with the OCA faculty and staff to put together the lineup of Art Workshops and presenters for the Student Art Seminar, helping to recruit a Keynote Speaker to kick off the Seminar and coordinating how the show will be judged. While sharing her skills with the next generation, she exemplifies how a successful career in the arts is often a blend of disciplines and experience.
