Amira Rogers Teaching-Artist, Flame and Flat shops. Lead Mosaic Residency Instructor
Amira Rogers is a contemporary artist with a life-long passion for creating art in multiple mediums, who began exploring art at a very young age. Amira formerly studied art for the first time at the acclaimed Art’s High School in Newark, NJ, then went on to earn her Bachelor of Fine Art degree, with a minor in graphic design, from Seton Hall University in 2014. Amira considers herself an interactive artist working in various mediums (photography, glass, acrylic paint, pencil and marker). To Amira, art is incomplete without the engagement of the viewer. Amira started at GlassRoots in 2008 as a summer intern, learning techniques in each of GlassRoots' three studios. She went on to join and flourish in other GlassRoots' programs, such as the Youth Entrepreneurial Spirit Program and the Summer Youth Leadership Corp. She recreates portraits and floral imagery as works of art that often double as functional items.
