Sondberg teaches sculpture, ceramics, women’s art history, and other courses. Prior to joining the faculty, she operated Copper Chameleon, a metalsmithing and jewelry-design business. She also has taught at the Sawtooth School for Visual Arts in Winston-Salem.

She holds a B.F.A. from East Carolina University and an M.F.A. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She joined the Greensboro College faculty in 2016.

Greensboro College’s Department of Art offers the B.A. or B.S. in Art and the B.A. in Art Education. The program, with individual attention to students, combines classic art principles with the liberal-arts foundations of diverse branches of inquiry, including both science and the humanities, so that students can incorporate as much of the world as possible into their own art-making.
