Art Classes for Kids & Adults with Amy Nichols

My high school daughter has taken classes with Amy for five years and my daughter raves about her. What is great about Amy is that she encourages creativity in a gentle way, creating a safe space for kids to express themselves.

Because she graduated from a highly competitive art school (Cooper Union had a 6% acceptance rate when she attended because it was 100% free tuition), she also understands what it takes to create a portfolio for kids who want to attend art school.

A mother of two kids, she is really great at relating to kids. Her students tend to stay with her until they graduate high school and go off to college, but come back to visit her when they are home. She’s that kind of teacher!
