Kyla is the daughter of Kyle Kemmerer and Ann Stewart of Susquehanna. SVA is one of the leading art schools in the nation, hosting instructors such as legendary Marshall Arisman, Steven Heller, Paula Scher, James Jean and Milton Glasier. Famous alumni range from Pop artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring to Bryan Singer (director of Xmen, prior to transfer), Steve Ditko (creator of Spiderman) to John R. Dilworth (creator of Courage the Cowardly Dog) and illustrators James Jean and Yuko Shimizu.
Kyla has also applied to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and is awaiting confirmation from the school before making final decisions. She was recently Artist of the Month with the Scranton Tribune this past October. WVIA’s Artist of the Week will also be featuring Kyla this spring in concession with the talented Ashlee Getter on the piano in her own feature.
As Kyla’s acceptance letter from SVA reads, “based on your academic and creative performances,” proves how Susquehanna produces well rounded, talented students who can achieve and go for their dreams, equipped and prepared.
