Veronica Batter, the founder of Rockdale Art Center, is a dedicated artist and educator with 18 years of teaching experience. After graduating from Moore College of Art and Design, with distinction, she went on to teach art at area schools spanning grades K-12th grade. She spent ten years teaching at Sun Valley High School, enriching the art department, and was co-founder of the annual arts gala Arts Alive. During her teaching career she earned a Masters of Liberal Studies with highest honors from Widener University. She was instrumental in forming Rockdale Arts District; a newly formed arts destination encompassing 9 arts organizations in the historic section of Aston. Veronica continues to create and teach and is actively involved in her local community, advocating for a rich and welcoming cultural corridor along Chester Creek.

I really enjoy watching students embrace their creativity and show pride in their artwork. When a student has an epiphany or realization and turns a corner in their art production, it's very rewarding.

Veronica is such an exceptional educator! My daughter has been taking her weekly classes for the last year and a half and we cant wait for fall to start to resume. Veronica thoughtfully weaves art and cultural history into each of her lessons. She allows hands-on exploration with different mediums. My young daughter comes home knowing not only historical facts, but how to work with clay, pastels, mosaics, and much much more. I tell everyone I know what a gem Veronica is. We are so lucky to have her!

Frequently asked questions

When working with a new student I like to hear about their previous instruction and experince. Then I tailor lessons based on this information as well as their goals. I offer support and encouragement, but I'm not afraid to challenge my students to further their growth.
