Art Instructor, Michelle Abrams, pictured with teaching assistants, Nick and Megan.
Michelle's contagious love for the arts brings out the best from her enthusiastic young students during directed-drawing classes. The resulting artwork is fresh, exuberant, and quite inspirational. Michelle often compares the artwork to the classics, describing it as, "quite colorful and strikingly beautiful - worthy of being called 'fine art' in the tradition of Matisse, Van Gogh, Picasso or Miro."

Michelle’s professional art and design background allows her to offer students unique insights and individual attention - knowing just when to help, encourage, or redirect them. After class, Michelle encourages parents and students to take their artwork off the refrigerator, enlarge it, frame it, and display it proudly throughout the house!
In 1996, Michelle’s husband, Glenn, was inspired to collect the student’s artwork and now, in addition to the thrill and satisfaction of being published artists, more than 88 young students have contracts and earn royalties for the reproduction of their work.
Some artists have even framed their first royalty checks - written on their own check designs, while others use their proceeds as extra allowance, for college savings, or to support causes important to them.
