About Instructor Ashlee Parrish
Ashlee Parrish grew up in Moultrie, GA and graduated from Colquitt County High School in 2014. Prior to attending Valdosta State University, she studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Art has always played a large role in Parrish’s life, even as she made attempts to study other disciplines in college, she always found herself drawn back to her creative instincts which led her to realize her passion for cultivating creative environments and her love of art history. Parrish enjoys spending time in the studio with her ceramics students, traveling every chance she gets, visiting with friends and family, attending concerts, and even occasionally sleeping.
