Katie Caron

Katie Caron is presently Head of Ceramics at Arapahoe Community College in Colorado. Caron graduated from Boston University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in English Education and minor in Theater Arts. After graduation, she decided to pursue her art fulltime and moved to Colorado. In 2007, Caron was accepted to the graduate program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan and graduated with a MFA in Ceramics and Sculpture. While teaching for the Cranbrook Art Institute in 2009, a 900lb. wall collapsed on Caron, crushing her spine and pelvis. During the recovery period, Caron created two bodies of work documenting her experience: Mending Series and Heartland Drawings. A short time after her surgery in 2010, Caron started working on Apoptosis in collaboration with Martha Russo for the Denver Art Museum’s exhibition Overthrown: Clay Without Limits in 2011. She has since completed numerous site specific installation at Project Miami, University of Michigan, Redline Art Space and Republic Plaza in Denver and was reviewed for Drosscapes, an immersive environment, in Sculpture Magazine’s June 2013 issue. Caron is an alumni of Redline Art Space and member of the Temple Studio Collective in Denver. Katie Caron resides in Littleton, CO with her family.
