Sept. 15th – Oct. 20th
Instructor: Sean Gallagher
The Painter’s Studio course centers around further developing individual painting techniques. This is a course designed to allow the
intermediate/advanced painter to continue the study of painting through independent, self-directed projects under the supervision of faculty instructor, Sean Gallagher.
A little about Sean: Having first served in the United States Air Force from 1988-1992, Sean Gallagher went on to receive his B.A. in Art & History Education from Saginaw Valley State University in 1997, and his M.A. in Humanities from Central Michigan University in 2003. He has worked as a high school art teacher in the Unionville- Sebewaing Area School District since 1998. In addition to teaching full-time, Sean also enjoys teaching a variety of classes here at Studio 23. In his free-time, he works as an art consultant and a freelance artist.
Comfortable using multiple mediums to fuel his imagination, Sean can best be described as a diverse artist. These mediums include, but are not limited to, clay, paint, pen and ink illustration, chalk, plus sand and snow sculptures.
