About Us

Bruce and Joanne own The Art Spot, a Fine Arts School in Connecticut, teaching children and adults watercolor, pastels, oils and many other art techniques. Other programming includes Artist in Residence programming in schools through out the east coast. They have two college age children, Alexander and Nicole, and live in Brookfield, Connecticut.

Our philosophy is to teach the basic rules – to demystify art – and to then motivate the artist to break those rules and thereby create their own unique style. We encourage the artist to develop their own creativity and imagination. In addition to bringing a broad scope of visual reference into the instruction we support ongoing dialogue with regard to techniques, artists, art history, museum exhibits.

Gallery Art Shows

Workshops for teachers are offered so teachers can broaden their own art experience and learn how to bring more art into their class rooms.
