A message from the teacher: Stacie Birky Greene

I decided to become an artist at an early age, as I was possessed with a heightened attention to visual detail and in love with the sensual delights of the processes involved with making art. There is nothing quite like the feel of the brush as it releases newly mixed paint on a canvas or the sound of charcoal scraping across art paper. I pursued art since I was a child, earning degrees in painting and art history and have worked as a practicing artist for over twenty years. The subject of my art has always centered around nature and its interaction with humanity, which I have explored in a variety of media: paint, drawing, photography, murals and installation. 

I believe in providing a warm and open classroom environment where students learn the fundamentals of art, for example, portraiture, still life, landscape, color theory and art history.  These subjects are explored while fostering a sense of creativity and personal expression. My projects have connections to math, science and the social sciences, and I make a special attempt to link our work with coursework students encounter in other disciplines. I feel the visual arts open doors that can empower a student, helping them to develop confidence and individuality by embracing both the intuitive and the rational, and providing a framework for creative thinking that is applicable to a broad variety of study.
