Community School of the Arts Instructors
Brittany Bowen | BA, Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification, Behavioral Health Specialist | Teaches Mindful Art
"My first art love is probably photography, and I was introduced to that when I was in middle school and experimented with disposable film cameras. I made my friends be my models and I even kept meticulous scrapbooks which kids these days might think are ancient relics."
Charles Seitzinger | BFA | Teaches Advanced Ceramics
"It is an odd thing, to have made art for most of my life and career but not to have considered taking the title of artist for myself until applying to the Arts program here at Austin Peay. It was then that I cast aside my post retirement wanderlust and focused on becoming an artist."
Dillon Ward | Professional Filmmaker | Teaches The Short Film
"I was first introduced to filmmaking the summer before 5th grade when I took a stop motion animation class. The camera we used took floppy disks, and I can still remember the stacks and stacks of floppy disks everyone had next to their computer while editing."
Megan Cundiff | Current APSU Dance Student | Teaches Ballet, Jazz and Tap
"When I was two, I started ballet classes, and now I have studied abroad in Japan twice, along with other opportunities in NYC dancing at Alvin Ailey and Broadway Dance Center. I have performed at the University of Louisville, East Tennessee State University, Coker College, University of Mississippi, Middle Tennessee State University and of course my college Austin Peay State University."
Tyler Spuzzillo | Current APSU Graduate Student | Teaches Beginning Guitar and Beginning Ukulele
"Music has been a love of mine for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I participated in choirs outside of school (instead of sports) and attended summer music camps. Shortly before I was a teenager, my parents gifted me a "guitar starter kit," which sparked my playing of instruments."
