Nancy is a painter of more than 30 years experience who received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Columbia University. Schedule a private or small group. Sessions can run for one hour to a full day or week-long. Any level of experience welcome.
Nancy has taught art workshops nationally at many venues including Columbia University, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Anderson Ranch and Santa Fe Art Institute.
”My goal is to give each person their next best step on the way to finding the medium, style, and approach that will best allow them to ‘speak’ through their work. For me, art is not a mysterious process, and I enjoy breaking down advanced concepts and techniques to easy bite-size pieces. My workshops are unintimidating, energized, informative, personal, and charged with up-to-date art news, art ideas, and new processes.”
Workshops and private sessions are personalized for your own rhythm and pace, with a focus on having fun. Nancy offers a wide variety of painting methodologies, exploring how ideas can be generated through a playful collaboration with materials, and allowing maximum flow of the individual creative experience (a more complex way of saying “having fun”).
