Alumni Spotlight: Amanda Cappelli '14

Amanda Cappelli '14 graduated from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia in December. 

Amanda’s senior thesis show exhibited her work from the year. Her thesis was a series of paintings, along with a paper, that focused on overcoming the struggles and frustrations related to having a learning difference and how art allowed her to release her feelings and follow her passion.

Amanda says her passion and love for art was found at Woodlynde! Amanda also works at Woodlynde’s Summer Program helping with our arts and crafts activities.
