Academy of the Arts
Margaret Winchester received a Bachelor of Science in Art and a Bachelor of Art in Psychology from Samford University, graduating in 2019. As an art major she concentrated on drawing and painting, specifically realism with oil paint. Through her psychology courses she learned about developmental and behavioral theories, as well as how learning changes throughout the lifespan. After graduation she moved to La Paz, Bolivia, to serve as a missionary and teacher at Highlands International School. She taught K-12 art for two years, focusing on a medium based curriculum including painting, drawing, sculpture, fiber arts and printmaking. She has just returned to Birmingham to attend graduate school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham pursuing a Master of Art in Art Education. She is thrilled to be working and teaching at the Academy while she pursues further education.
