Alexandra OverbyAdjunct Graduate Instructor
Hello everyone, my name is Alexandra Overby, and I have been in the field of art education for over twenty years. Currently, I teach at an urban high school in downtown Denver, Colorado where I work with students in the areas of AP Studio Art, Digital Photography, and AP Art History. I have a hybrid role where I split my time between teaching classes and coaching teachers. I also am part of the district visual art professional development team. To add to all this, I am the head editor of the Colorado Art Education Association online magazine.
I am a Sun Devil through and through – I earned all my degrees at Arizona State University, ending with a Ph.D. in Art Education. (Go Devils!) I have taught a range of students from pre-K to adults and was an Assistant Professor at Alabama A&M University and an instructor at Arizona State University before moving to the amazing state of Colorado. I have presented at many conferences including the National Art Education Association, the International Visual Sociology Association, and the Society for Photographic Educators. My research includes issues of photography practice, visual ethnography, technology in art education, and secondary curriculum issues.BACK to our team
