Jenna Lucente is an Assistant Professor of Visual Arts. Along with a variety of studio art courses, she also teaches many of the computer graphic art courses offered within the department. Her artistic interests and involvement outside of school help inform her practice in the classroom by preparing students for a career in the arts. Her former experience in the publishing industry working at Time Inc, Martha Stewart, Rodale and Ziff Davis allow direct correlation between the professional design world and skills within the classroom. Additionally, Jenna has exhibited her paintings and drawings in a number of galleries and small museums, in both group and solo exhibits. Currently Jenna maintains an art studio at the Delaware Contemporary, and regularly participates in First Friday events. She was fortunate enough to design a permanent work of public art comprised of 28 glass windows for the Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York. Jenna is a founder and co-editor of Salem Community College’s online literary and arts magazine, From the Oak Desk, and regularly coordinates student art exhibits at the college. When not teaching or in the studio, Jenna can be found swimming, walking, talking, breathing, looking at cattails and searching for egrets along various shorelines.
