Seth Rouser is the Department of Fine Arts' foundations coordinator. In addition to his main charge of teaching foundations, Rouser also commonly works with art students of all levels, giving instruction in multiple disciplines and media. Rouser is part of the Fine Arts Department's technology and education initiative, which has implemented a new focus on the use of digital technology in the arts studio and arts education. He has been instrumental in developing videos and other instructional materials for art education students to effectively advance the use of digital technology in the K-12 arts classroom. He has also worked to produce a series of instructional videos on drawing through a grant from the Imagination Institute in Philadelphia, an affiliate of the John Templeton Foundation. Rouser's work has been exhibited in many juried art competitions, group exhibitions, and one-man shows in galleries and other venues throughout the Southeast. His work as an artist has ranged in both media and style. Much of his work displays a combination of various techniques and modes of image making to create unique and innovative forms in two-dimensional art. In addition, Rouser has produced many solo and collaborative works using digital media, including experimental video.
