About the Instructor

Nancy Van Meter is a 2013 graduate of the acclaimed Schuler School of Fine Arts where students learn multiple disciplines in techniques of classical realism. Nancy presently works as a full-time professional artist and art teacher.

Before Schuler, Nancy studied with photographer and sculptor William Christenberry at the Corcoran College of Art in Washington DC, where she learned to combine vigorous abstraction with delicate representation in paintings, drawings, and antiquated photo processes. Eight of her cyanotype photograms and one painting are in the permanent collection of photography and media arts at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Examples of Nancy's artwork are included in numerous national and international public and private collections in the United States and Europe.

Nancy lives in Baltimore, Maryland and is represented primarily by Dog + Horse Fine Art and Portraiture in Charleston, South Carolina.

She also teaches plein air classes with Fritz Briggs in the summer months through the Schuler School of Fine Arts.
