ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Suzanne DesLauriers was born in North Carolina, but spent most of her early years in Brazil. She remembers the bright greens and reds of the lush tropical plants against a lemon yellow sun and a bright, clear cobalt sky. This same color sensibility permeated her soul and has accompanied her through her years as an artist and an educator. She remembers her first trip back up into the Blue Ridge mountains and how the light on that late September day played sideways through the trees over the ridge casting one beautiful shadow after another against yellow green fields and a clear blue sky. Her passion for Winslow Homer and N.C. Wyeth and their clear crisp use of color found a home here in the mountains of North Carolina.
Suzanne received a BA in fine arts from Florida Southern College and an MA in art education from the University of South Carolina. She loves helping her students "unlock the artist within' and because of this passion she received the 1996 Western N.C. Creative Teacher of the Year award, was the 1999-2000 North Carolina Secondary Art Teacher of the Year, and was listed in Who's Who of American Women, Who's Who in America for 2004-2009, and Who's Who in the World 2009 -. She has exhibited in galleries in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and North Carolina .She enjoyes teaching at John C Campbell Folk School, NC, in Port Clyde, Maine and at Edisto Island, SC.
