Since the mid-1970s, Ellen Stutman has been teaching at CCAE. Ellen teaches drawing to beginner level students who have little-to-no drawing experience, working with them to develop self-confidence in a supportive environment. Ellen describes, “I love that wonderful moment when [students] suddenly realize, “I can do this!” then the actual learning process can take place.”
Ellen’s own work is inspired by nature, and she has recently been exploring a new medium with woodcuts. She started painting when living in Europe for 6 years. Ellen holds a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute and MFAs in Painting and Art Education from Boston University.
