He’s Not Just Our Instructor

Our very own Nicholas Stewart was in Buffalo, New York yesterday and today. He was employed as a visiting artist to lecture and demo his unique style and share his superb teaching with the students and faculty of the art program at Buffalo State University. We really miss Nick, here at the studio but recognize that we must share him with the world. Congratulations Nick, safe travels home.
