Steven Dobbin’s art reflects the concerns and hopes he has for the futures of the emotionally disturbed and developmentally disabled students he teaches. He explores the consequences of the often tragic circumstances of their lives and responds to the impact of their uninformed and seemingly capricious personal choices which affect them and their families.
Born in Washington, DC, Dobbin received his Master’s Education from George Washington University in Severely Emotionally Disturbed Adolescents. He teaches Special Education at Frederick High School in MD. He lives with his family in Mt. Airy.
