2022-2023 Scholarship Fashion Institute of Technology
Starr Solié is pursuing a BFA in Spatial Experience Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC. She graduated from New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and St. Katharine Drexel Prep in 2018 then moved to New York to attend the FIT where she obtained an associates degree in Fine Arts in 2020. She came home to Louisiana and transitioned to virtual learning during the pandemic. She currently instructs students at Painting With A Twist and looks forward to returning to NYC.
“Painting has always been my first love but after taking photography, sculpture, pottery, and wood shop classes, my mind was opened to all the other ways art can be made using digital media software programs, textures, and 3D materials that make the art come up off the canvas,” says Solié. “My most inspiring and insightful experience so far in my academic career is being a part of the BSU “Black In Time” Black History Art Show that was in the main lobby of FIT. Seeing the process behind the scenes of putting a show together really inspired me to pursue curating shows.”
Starr Solié was active in the YAYA young artists’ guild from 2013-2018.
