Kathleen Dugan Bio
Kathleen Dugan, professor of art, works and teaches primarily within the areas of painting and drawing. She also teaches 2-D Design as a part of the Foundations Program, as well as art history courses within the liberal arts required curriculum.

Professor Dugan’s current work focuses conceptually on autism spectrum disorder. The portraits she paints of children diagnosed with autism are both an attempt to raise awareness to a broader community and also an attempt at "facing" twins diagnosed with autism for herself. She received a Lilly Scholars Grant for her work with autism in 2007.

Dugan earned her BFA with distinction from Indiana University in 1978; she completed her MFA in 1985 at Yale University's School of Art. Her work has been shown in galleries across the United States, Canada, and abroad.

Kathleen Dugan has been at Anderson University since 1992.
