A little about Jacob..

My name is Jacob Amundson, and I have been teaching at Greenville College since 2006. I am a Greenville alum with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art with emphasis in Painting and Graphic Design. I worked as a graphic designer in St. Louis while getting my Masters in Studio Art emphasizing in Alternative Media at Webster University. I am completing my MFA in Studio Arts focusing on New Genre at Azusa Pacific University.

What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

My favorite part of working here at GC is really the people I get to interact with. The faculty and staff are amazing but the students are the best part. I get to talk about Digital Media, Art, and life with them on a daily basis both inside the classroom and in the act of living together in community. We get to explore creation and creativity together in ways that teach me just as much as I want to teach students in my classes.

What attracted you to the Art Department, and how do you use it outside of the classroom?

I was one of the first few students who had the opportunity to study graphic design formally at GC. A lot of times, advancements in technology aren't fully understood or completed entirely until artists get a hold of them and break them down both physically and philosophically.

Besides teaching at Greenville, I am also a professional artist. I combine my digital media practices with my studio practice to create works that I show in galleries. To see more of how they are integrated, visit www.jacobamundson.com.
