Art & Art History

Kelly Parisi Castro

Lecturer in Art

I team teach Creative Process and Environmental and Public Art.

As an artist I work primarily in video and photography. I’ve exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Minneapolis MN, Arlington VA, and College Park, Dowell, Cumberland and Chestertown MD. I’m a 2013 fellow at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, Amherst, VA. 

I’ve written for Baltimore Magazine, Private Air Magazine, Urbanite Magazine, The Chestertown Spy, The Chesapeake Times and Washington College Alumni Magazine. 

I’ve also done exhibition, book and graphic design for numerous design studios, publishers and museums, including the Smithsonian Institution and HarperCollins. While freelancing as a designer, I became a certified life coach, logging over 500 hours coaching writers, artists and entrepreneurs.
