Nickel Plate Arts is excited to present Jeanette Pomeroy Parssi as our new Tween Drawing Class instructor starting in October!

This 7-week drawing class is available to tween artists at all skill levels, basic to advanced. This is a great class for beginners and a relaxed opportunity for more experienced tween artists! Instructor Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi found her path in 1994 when she left the corporate world to pursue art. She has studied with renowned artists Graham Nickson, Dean of the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture; and Miraslov Antic, an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She also has traveled extensively to many locales in Europe to hone her craft, sometimes alone and other times part of a group, but always with the goal of becoming a better artist. Jeannette is truly passionate about art and looks forward to teaching participants skills and techniques of artistic expression through drawing.

Nickel Plate Arts will provide basic materials, but participants may also bring their own supplies.
