Matthew Doll is a painter and graphic designer, and the Program Director of the Gordon IN Orvieto semester program, where his Disegno/Drawing course serves as the cornerstone of the curriculum. Previously Doll taught drawing at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem for six years. Doll is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where he studied on RISD’s European Honors Program in Rome. He studied in Jerusalem on a Fulbright Fellowship and earned an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He taught drawing, painting, and design at Gordon College from 2001–2002.
