Allison Farrell has been a member of the Ravens Run family since the summer of 2008. She has been an art teacher for over 10 years, and currently teaches elementary art in the Central Bucks School District. When making her own art Allison enjoys printmaking, drawing, needle felting, and especially CLAY! Her favorite things about Ravens Run are the tight knit community among campers and staff, sharing our local art community with campers and getting messy in the Clay Shack. Allison lives in Lambertville with her husband and 3 cats. You might see her tubing down the Delaware on a Saturday in the summer, or riding her bike to camp in the morning.
