Assistant Professor

Erin Smith-Glenn is an art instructor at Central State University and the primary advisor of the Visual Arts Club at Central State University. She holds an M.F.A. from the University of Cincinnati and a B.A. from Central State University, with 2 dimensional studio art as her concentration from both institutions. Her experience and understanding of 2D studio art includes the media of colored pencil, charcoal, pastel, graphite, oil painting, acrylic painting, and ink on multiple surfaces.

Upon graduation from Central State University with a BA in studio art, Erin Smith-Glenn immediately pursued her MFA, as well as a lifelong passion for studying abroad in Italy, which she considers one of the top career decisions she’s ever made.  She has exhibited her work in Tennessee, Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Yellow Springs and more recently, the African American Art Exhibition that occurs annually in Louisville, Kentucky.

She realized her home was once again at Central State University, where she currently serves a full time position and teaches drawing, painting, design, and history courses in the Fine & Performing Arts Department. She plans to continually practice her artwork, vows never to stop “growing as an artist and individual”, and will always strive to instill this concept in her students as she does herself.
