About the Instructor
An RVA transplant from the Midwest, Alex Neckopulos received a BFA in Economics and Studio Art from Grinnell college. After finishing school, she lived out of a backpack for two years, worked in several different countries, and drew all the places she went. Seeking to add color and complexity to her black ink drawings when she returned to the States, Alex took to screen printing. She continues experimenting with the medium and focuses on creating hand drawn designs inspired by detail found in nature. As a teacher and an artist, Alex believes art is one of the best tools for learning. She is excited by every opportunity to bring this enthusiasm to the studio.See More Classes By Instructor
