Madeline Sorel

Adj Asst Professor


I majored in illustration at The Rhode Island School of Design. After graduating, I illustrated on-going columns for the New York Times and The N.Y. Daily News. My work has appeared in National magazines and I have illustrated books for children and adults.

I segued into education graduating with Honors from Brooklyn College, with a Masters in Art Education in 2004.I have been teaching illustration and design at Kingsborough Community College since 2001. In 2018, I received an MFA from Marywood University's Masters with The Masters program where I wrote a book about Nuno Felting as my thesis project.

For the past decade I have led Inter-Generational art programs funded by grants where college students collaborate with Older Adults. Community is very important to me. I work at a few Senior Centers in my neighborhood of South Brooklyn and have discovered that gathering people together to work on a wide variety of art projects is nurturing to the spirit of the people attending as well as myself.

I feel fortunate to work in the public City University system of NYC, where I get to meet people from all over the world and from a wide variety of backgrounds. I enjoy traveling and meeting people as I do through the NYC Urban Sketchers group where we sketch on location and have taken trips to other cities such as Philadelphia and Princeton.
