Info Share: Studio EDU 2021 Offerings

Announcing the upcoming 2021 studio arts education offerings. Featured are overviews of workshops plus enrollment details and demo plus a New Year special available to individuals and families signing up for winter classes and workshops. This year, the focus is storytelling.


As a teaching artist, Nadïne has developed and led workshops in visual arts as well as music, theater and literature for educational institutions and arts organizations since 2004. Her goal is to empower students to reach their potential and inspire their personal development through finding their true voice within the creative process, employing a strong focus on experimentation combined with observation and research as well as personal and cultural symbols.

As part of her studio practice, Nadïne conducts intensives in visual language and storytelling through onsite residencies, after-school programs and virtual arts education.

Nadïne teaches as an adjunct art educator at the Paul Robeson Galleries of Rutgers University leading art outreach workshops in under-served communities and the Arts & Innovation Center of Rowan College of South Jersey.
