Lydia Freeby


Lydia earned her Bachelor’s degree in Art Therapy as well as a certificate in Community Arts Practices from Temple University. Fall semester of her senior year, she interned as an assistant teacher for a K-2nd puppet-making class in addition to a 3rd-5th grade film/photography class at University City Arts League in Philadelphia. There she had the opportunity to observe and facilitate art making experiences with young students. During the following spring semester, she served as an activities aide at Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapely, concentrating most of her work in the art department. She assisted in developing art engagements for the residents in addition to coming up with adaptations so each activity was fully accessible. Working with such a wide range of people was a formative experience that nurtured her pre-existing interest in a career that would allow her to not only share the therapeutic power of art, but also care for people in a way that helps them live full lives. Lydia’s background in art molded her into a perfect fit for COS and the Waldorf pedagogy.

Outside of school, Lydia prioritizes spending time with her loved ones, traveling, and creating art in whatever way she can. Additionally, after playing the alto saxophone for 9 years and soccer for 13, she loves to find ways to integrate music into her daily life and stay active through walks outside, yoga, and hiking.
