Ms. Rebecca Louise Hare

I am very excited to be teaching Art at Clayton High School. I have a BFA in industrial design from The European Design Institute in Milan, Italy and a M.A.T. in art from Fontbonne University, St. Louis. I have worked in Italy for ten years as a design consultant and creative director, creating spaces and designing products (from MRI machines and coffee makers to hair brushes) for global companies before becoming fascinated with education. My master’s thesis focused on design thinking, evaluating, and enhancing creativity through the study of design and art. I have collaborated with a number of schools, designing learning spaces that enhance student learning and taught in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami before moving back to St. Louis to become a part of the amazing learning community at Clayton.
