Nan Covert, Artist

Nan R. Covert, chair of the Art Department of Bridgewater College in Virginia, returns to the Farm Class from 2008. Her paintings reflect her passion for color and the process of painting. The subject matter for this session was found in the local habitat: hills, streams, plants, and animals. Students used both oil and acrylic.

Nan was awarded Bridgewater College’s Martha B. Thornton Faculty Recognition Award which honors faculty who “provide caring concern for students well beyond the role as teacher.” Covert’s enthusiastic teaching will inspire both the beginning and the advanced painter.
