Claire Cochran ’06 will teach Visual Arts 7 and Mixed Media classes at the Middle School after acting as an assistant to upper school visual arts teacher Marianne Hall last year.

Cochran has taught history courses at the Charter High School of the Arts Multimedia and Performing.

However, this will be the Harvard-Westlake grad’s first time teaching studio art in a formal classroom setting.

“It’s interesting because for me, graduating Harvard-Westlake seems like two years ago even though I graduated in 2006,” Cochran said. “It feels really, really recent so I am excited to kind of have a relatively recent perspective on being a student here and engaging kids in art.”
