Phyllis Andrade | Collage
& Mixed Media
I have made art all my life, always drawing and sketching. Early on I discovered printmaking, mostly making monoprints. Gathering materials to apply to my prints gradually led to using my older prints in collage form. I love combining images that seem to have no relationship. Once things are down, a dialogue develops between myself and the work till I’m pleased. I hope students and viewers can create their own narrative and enjoy!
Explore The Arts!
I'm a 2009 graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where I majored in art education. I have experience teaching in both private and public schools. My favorite medium is charcoal and pastel. I love drawing because all you need is a paper and pencil and I can do it anywhere. I carry a sketch book everywhere I go just in case I get the chance to capture portraits and wild life.

Tony Andrade | Painting
I make images with paint, paper, canvas, cameras, computers and a deep love of art. I enjoy making art as much as I can. Always trying to find a new way to touch people whether through nostalgia, narrative, figurative or abstract approaches.The response from students is what excites me the most about teaching. I strive to have them as excited about making art as I am. Whether abstract or realism, make the images come from down deep.

Marco A. Vizcarra
I’m a self-taught painter. The themes of my paintings navigate a wide range and are nourished by natural beauty, the splendor of colors and shapes, dramatic contrasts, and the inexhaustible scenery of nature. My watercolors also include urban land-scapes, architectural details, seascapes and forest scenes. The exploration of techniques never ceases to amaze me. I think that through painting we honor all the wonders that exist in our habitat.
