Interested in teaching a class or workshop at Carnegie Hall?

Barbara Stanley has always had the compulsion to draw—anything. After earning a B. S. in Art Education from the University of Houston she taught high school art and commercial art to adults at a vocational school. In her 20s, while teaching art, she concentrated on painting and figure drawing. She was a founding member of the Professional Artists Cooperative Trust (PACT), an organization that promoted its members art. Regularly during this time her work was accepted into juried exhibitions. She stopped teaching art to become a freelance graphic designer which became a full time business after the birth of her daughter, Mira. Thirty five years later, at age 70, she is inspired to create fine art, practice and teach Ashtanga Yoga, and continue graphic design services for select clients in her Renick, WV home studio.

Chance Encounters
Inspired by her travels, nature, watching people and animals do what they do. “I can think of nothing more interesting and diverse to paint,” she says.
