CSSSA VLOG: Phoebe Shenker
Phoebe Schenker attended the CSSSA Visual Arts program in1995 where she studied photography. Coming from a small town where she attended public school, she had a hard time finding like-minded artists. The current of her life changed when she attended CSSSA because she was surrounded by artistic peers and professional working adults who taught classes and visited as guest artists.
One of her favorite CSSSA memories was wandering into the CalArts main gallery where she found two acoustic guitarists riffing Spanish Flamenco music and she had never seen anything like it before. She sat down and sketched it out so she wouldn’t lose that magical moment.
Phoebe attended the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and is now a senior associate at the prestigious EHDD Architecture in San Francisco. She spends her day designing some of the most impressive buildings in the Bay Area, including the Lands End Lookout.
