A Note from the Teacher

"Each time I teach this material, I understand it on a deeper level. I realize now that when I received the lessons from Edith Niblo, she was absolutely current. She shared the most forward teachings of great teachers like Hans Hofmann. Hofmann taught about “push/pull” and the principles of organizing space that could lead either to Abstract Expressionism or figurative art.

Most importantly, this material will lead you to find your own path as an artist. It is an honor to pass along Edith’s basic philosophy of art and life. Your art process and your spiritual process are intertwined. As you work your way through the lessons, you will understand how you can use the elements and apply the principles of design to make strong personal visual statements." —Linda Armantrout on "The Art Process."
