RMCAD Faculty

Eric Mullis, MFA

Eric is currently located in Lakewood, CO, and holds an MFA from Boise State. Eric specializes in installation and ceramic sculpture. He has been recognized at the Rocky Mountain Triennial Exhibition and as an Evans School and AiR Vallauris Resident artist. It is Eric’s belief that in order to create a successful learning environment, all students must feel welcome and validated. He believes that educators should meet students where they are and challenge them with work and ideas that will motivate them to learn and grow.

Eric loves teaching foundations courses because he enjoys exposing students to a range of new artworks, ideas, and processes. In these courses, students get to bring their existing interests and skills to the table to make some fascinating objects and experiences. His favorite project to teach at RMCAD is the Studio Seminar Collaborative Project because it helps first-year students at RMCAD build relationships with their peers and brings the whole RMCAD community together. He was originally trained as a production potter and still loves to play with clay but has expanded into creating multi-media installations that include everything from intricately cut paper to projection mapping and physical computing. When he is not teaching or working in the studio, Eric enjoys playing video games with his kid, going for long bike rides, backpacking, and playing board games with his friends and family.
