Classes Resume Oct 6th!
Nancy is a graduate of the Design Department at UC Davis and holds a secondary teaching credential in Art and English. Unfortunately, her teaching career was brief due to moving about for her husband’s career, and soon thereafter she was busy raising twin boys. Her desire for painting in oils and acrylics, which was also encouraged by her artist mother, had to take a backseat in those early years and it wasn’t until 4 ½ years ago that the interest was rekindled, but his time watercolor became her passion.
She has studied with two instructors in the Grants Pass area and signs up for every workshop that scheduling will permit. Her paintings have taken many first place ribbons and People’s Choice awards in local studio shows as well as the Josephine County Fair. She is a Past President of the Josephine County Artists Association, a member of the Rogue Gallery, the Grants Pass Museum of art and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists. Eager to share her watercolor passion with others , she looks forward to working with the folks at The Artist Attic to bring affordable, interesting and challenging classes to the Southern Rogue Valley.

Intermediate Students: The class for intermediate students is designed for those who have had some basic watercolor instruction and are ready to begin composing their own paintings with sample sketches and use of color, samples of compositions from which to work, and a gentle critique of the students' progress at the end of each class. The goals is to help students expand their watercolor instruction through on-going projects, yet allowing the students to create original works.

Acrylic Classes: As a professional artist, I will teach you all that I know! Since all students will be at different levels, I want to make sure that students have an understanding of color theory. So if you have not ever made a color wheel, that will be a basic beginning project. I want to make sure that students understand the acrylic medium, so exploration of acrylics will happen with teacher assigned projects. Students may also begin painting their own ideas and subject matter which they are interested. All Classes are on-going, so you may jump in at any time!

Jean's class resumes in October
What will the class be like?
As a professional artist, I will teach you all that I know! Since all students will be at different levels and working in different mediums, I want to be sure that students have an understanding of the medium that they wish to work in and the Principles and Elements of Art that one considers when creating art.
After teaching for over 30 years, I have found that most of my students have a very definitive idea about what they want to do, but they need guidance in doing it!
And if you aren’t sure what you wish to do, I am happy to suggest projects.
I have been passionately teaching and creating art for over 30 years. I have taught all ages of students from 3 to 93! I graduated from one of the nation’s top art colleges, The Rhode Island School of Design. I regularly exhibit, take commissions and have won awards. You are in good hands!
I am a very versatile artist who works in most mediums, except for oils paints, as I do not like the toxicity of the turpentine etc. I paint in Watercolors and Acrylics. I draw with pencil and color pencils. I work in papier-mâché. I sew and weave and work in Mixed Media in both the 2-D and 3 –D format.
With Artist and Teacher, Terri Regotti
Fridays 1-3 PM
This class is on-going to jump in at any time!
