ZAKIYAH SCARAMUZZINO

MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR

I am an artist, animator, and educator with a passion for the merge of arts and technology. I studied graphic design for two years at the University of New Haven, and earned my B.F.A from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Animation. My experiences as a visual arts teacher and school administrator have cultivated my dedication to the importance of learning through the arts, which drives my passion for ASAP!’s mission.

I joined ASAP! in September 2021 and have since been inspired by the communities our organization brings together inside and outside of the classroom. I can see the positive impact our teaching artists and programs have just by bringing the students outdoors, getting them moving, and providing them an environment where they are encouraged to be creative. Each day I look forward to strengthening human connection, promoting arts-infused education, and immersing myself in the visual and performing arts communities around Connecticut.
