BALTIMORE--Shana Kroiz, faculty member, and the special events and workshop coordinator for MICA's Jewelry Center at Meadow Mill, founded the studio center and program. Through her vision, the Center has evolved into a full certificate-honoring program offering a wide range of classes. She and the Center were featured in the Baltimore Messenger and twice in the Baltimore Jewish Times in February, and in a cover story in Metalsmith magazine.

The Metalsmith article says "Shana Kroiz personifies some of the best impulses of the field: her dedication as a teacher, her love of making, and her devotion to family compete for her not inconsiderable energies and attention and she is generous with all."

In a Q&A with Kroiz in the Jewish Times, she talks about how she balances her art and her new family, and how her designs have changed since she has had kids.

Krois showcased her jewelry in the American Craft Council Show at the Baltimore Convention Center in February and is one of 17 jewelry artists featured in the Smithsonian Craft Show, April 22-25. For more information about Kroiz, visit her Web site.
