Christine Tillman

Upper School Visual Arts and Pre-K-12 Visual Arts Chair

Christine is the Pre-K-12 Visual Arts Chair and teaches visual arts in the Upper School.

Christine currently runs the Gallery Committee and is co-class advisor to the Class of 2024 — the fourth time she has advised a class from its freshman to senior year.

“I would say that I’m like an art coach in the classroom: I meet students where they are in terms of their art experience and I create a space for students to create and grow through making artwork and connections to the world around them.”

A practicing and exhibiting artist, Christine has been a member of the Drawing Center Viewing Program and received a Maryland State Arts Council Grant for her Works on Paper. She exhibits work locally and nationally including spaces such as Latela Curatorial in D.C.; Silber Gallery at Goucher College; Material Art Space in Memphis, Tenn.; Lawrence Art Center, and Grizzly Grizzly in Philadelphia; and Rare Device in San Francisco. Christine is a member of the flat file program at Transformer Gallery in D.C. An ongoing collaborative project, Chroma, with artist Lisa Solomon, has been commissioned for several private and public collections

Christine has presented at a number of conferences, including AIMS, Progressive Education Network (PEN), National Art Education Association (NAEA), and People of Color Conference. She earned a B.A. in Art from Coe College, and an M.F.A. and M.A. in Painting and Drawing from University of Iowa. She is the parent of a Park School student in the Class of 2030.
