Consultant Bio

M. Colleen Harrigan

My name is Colleen Harrigan and I am an artist and teacher at Clarkstown South High School in West Nyack, NY. I am a former Co-Chair of the College Board AP Art and Design Development Committee and currently the Lead Workshop Consultant for AP Art and Design. At the AP Reading, my role is Question Leader for the portfolio examination, and I am one of the authors of the College Board “Vertical Team Guide in Studio Art.” I have presented at NAEA (National Art Education Association) conferences, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and led AP workshops throughout the U.S. and in Shanghai and Hangzhou, China respectively. I am involved in many aspects of teaching and learning, from guiding students in the classroom to professional development with teachers. I have studied internationally and received fellowships in Italy and Japan. These opportunities have enabled me to meet and work with many talented individuals and have informed both my teaching and studio practices. I look forward to working and learning with you!
