About the Instructor

While having studied in several colleges, it was the League where Martha Bloom found her artistic home. She received her Certificate of Completion in Fine Arts Graphics, and studied sculpture, drawing, and painting. Ms. Bloom received the McDowell Traveling Scholarship and served on the Board of Control for three years as a graphics representative.

She studied with many living legends: drawing with Robert Beverly Hale; painting with Isaac Soyer, Sidney Dickinson, and Bruce Dorfman; sculpture with José de Creeft and Sidney Simon; printmaking with Michael Ponce de Leon and Seong Moy; and more. Ms. Bloom taught a children’s class at the League from 1986 until last year when she began teaching an all-ages, all-media Saturday class. She also teaches all ages at the National Academy School and Silvermine School of Art in Connecticut, along with workshops, outreach, and museum programs. Ms. Bloom’s intuitive and distinctive style of artmaking integrates her training in many media. She has a natural affinity for found collections and an imaginative take on universal issues.

Her work has been exhibited widely and is represented in many private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Academy, Columbia Museum, Delaware Art Museum, and the Library of Congress.
