Princeton Academy is proud to welcome Ryan Lilienthal as its new Middle School Art educator. Mr. Lilienthal studied drawing, painting and sculpture at the Boston Museum School in MA while attending Tufts University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in religion. During that time, Mr. Lilienthal apprenticed with Siri Berg, in SoHo, NY, whose paintings are part of the permanent collection at the Guggenheim and other museums. Mr. Lilienthal further developed his painting skills at the Torpedo Factory in VA, Silvermine Art Center in CT, Bennington Art Center in VT, and the Arts Council of Princeton. He has also studied sculpture at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and is a member of the Arts Students League of New York.
Headmaster Rik Dugan stated, "As we seek to reinvent boys education for a new generation of enlightened men, there is no doubt that Mr. Lilienthal knows how to inspire our young men to explore their identities and the world around them through a process-oriented approach to self-expression through the arts."
Mr. Lilienthal is also the proud father of PASH alumnus Evan '17. With enthusiasm, Mr. Lilienthal said, "Having been part of the PASH community as a parent, I am hugely excited to join the faculty in the area of my passion: art. I look forward to collaborating with other faculty members to further cultivate an engaging and dynamic visual arts program that builds on Princeton Academy's strategic vision for our students."
