Rachel Znerold

by Shanna (’13)

I’ve had Scott as a teacher for almost two years and I feel like I know him pretty well; so when Heather told us his wife was coming in to teach CW, I knew she was going to be to cool. And it was true, Rachel emanated this totally friendly and down-to-earth, arsty vibe. She’s an artist that deals a lot with social activism and social constraints in her work and pushes those boundaries, which is something CW hasn’t seen a lot of. It was a refreshing change of pace, to work with someone who showed us her art not only in pictures and paintings, but also in a real-life installation in the CW room. And I think most of the girls in CW agree, after Rachel showed us some of the many wedding dresses she made (including her own!), we all wanted to jump the gun and ask her to design our own. Rachel was such an amazing artist and person that all of CW agrees: we want her back. (And good job, Scott – your favorite student approves.)
