Create & Learn

Elizabeth Stockfish

Graphic Designer, Artist, and Design Educator

Growing up, I was obsessed with design. Creating was all I ever wanted to do. I taught myself every design program I could get my hands on and created everything from websites to yearbooks. Following this passion, I attended college to become a graphic designer and worked as a design instructor at the Student Tech Center on campus. In the 10 years since then, I have worked with educational and gaming (Xbox, Minecraft) brands to bring engaging content and packaging to kids! Now as an educator here at Create & Learn, I bring all of this passion and experience for design to the classroom. My goal is to empower young creatives to express who they are and to educate them on the tools that will help them do just that. I have seen the power of using creative expression to build confidence and hope to instill this positive outlook in my students!
