To create and to be in balance

Welcome to Nancy's art


Nancy’s life-long connection with nature’s beauty is evidenced by the colors, textures, and composition she brings to her work.

“I believe art stimulates curiosity and thought and allows us to connect, consciously or subconsciously, with our emotions and memories.” Nancy explains.

The first half of each class the student will be guided through a variety of exercises to loosen up and explore new techniques. The second half of the class the student will work on a project of their choice. The class will have demos, trial and error time, group discussions and individual project time.  During the demos, the instructor will show how to use the medium, the paper, and application.  Learning the basics in a hands on approach and developing yourself as the artist is a major goal to this class. To help the artist achieve the goal, Nancy will work with each student one-on-one providing valuable guidance

The intermediate/advanced classes will focus on new techniques, principals of design and elements of art  to enhance your work. Learn about composition, color mixing, muddy colors and how to avoid it, color harmony, how to simplify shapes to enrich your art work, values and a ton of tips and tricks.  Be ready to take some risks in order to step up a level by incorporating textures, patterns, limited palette.  In order for you to take these steps the instructor creates a fun, encouraging, creative environment.

Over the past 20 years, Nancy Lewis has been an Artist and instructedat Colorado Mesa University, Colorado Institute of Art, Arapahoe Community College, and the Professional Training Center. During these new series of art classes, she will share her artistic insights to using color, visual elements of art, and design concepts through exploration and experimentation.  Trying new things and stretching your limits is the only way to get better.
