Alison Croney

I received her BA in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design. I received her MA in Sustainable Business and Communities from Goddard College. I worked at Anderson Ranch Art Center and MCA Denver in Colorado and Red Rabbit in New Your City.

I'm currently the Director of the School Partnership Program at the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts where she oversees visual arts and woodworking programs in Boston Public Schools. Occasionally I teach woodworking classes to K-8 students.

I create objects that walk the line between function and sculpture. Using techniques such as coopering and bending, I highlight forms found in nature while creating objects that encourage interaction.

I strongly believe that positive change in communities will only happen if young people are empowered by knowledge, skills, and experiences. I am committed to working with young people to help them along this path of positive change.
