ABOUT THE FACULTY:
Some of the nation's top prize-winning picture editors and skilled administrators make up the Kalish faculty. In the workshop's early years, the faculty, led by director John Ahlhauser, developed the workshop into one of the best in the country. Among the first faculty were J. Bruce Baumann, Bob Gilka, Claude Cookman, Carol McKay, Bob Lynn, Bill Blanton and Carolyn Lee.
Usually, eight faculty members are scheduled for each session. Most of them remain present for the entire session so there is ample interaction with all the students. In past years, the faculty has included: John Ahlhauser, J. Bruce Baumann, Jan Carroll, Randy Cox, Sonya Doctorian, Mark Edelson, Bill Gugliotta, Kenny Irby, Bob Lynn, Geri Migielicz, Sue Morrow, Mary Jo and Bryan Moss, Bruce Moyer, Bart Rayniak, Patty Reksten, Julie Elman, John Rumbach, Scott Sines, Brian Storm and Eric Strachan.
The Kalish faculty volunteer their time and expertise; they sometimes even use vacation days to gather in Muncie once a year because they are committed to great visual storytelling and think that it's critical that they pass along their knowledge to others working in the field. Their dedication and passion for their profession are the keys to the success of The Kalish.
In addition, a group of faculty members administrate The Kalish. They provide direction, oversight and labor to assure the success of the Kalish from year-to-year. They are: Randy Cox, Geri Migielicz, Scott Sines, John Rumbach, Brian Storm, Kevin Martin, Danny Gawlowski and Sue Morrow, the current director.
