About the Instructors:

Mary Jo (MJ) Ernst grew up in West Michigan and has been sketching her whole life. She uses all types of mediums in her artwork. Ink, especially solubles, is her preferred choice for quick sketching.  Her sketch style is whimsical and impressionistic. MJ encourages anyone, all skill levels, to pick up a pen, pencil or brush to get started and make a mark!Visit the ACWL-Nuveen or go to @MysteriousMannequin on Facebook and Instagram to see her artwork.

Ann G Rusky believes that the making of art is the chance for the soul to play. It is the process of taking what moves your spirit internally and letting it inspire you externally. It is the opportunity to take what you see and feel and express it through your artwork. Ann is an Artist and Illustrator from Grand Rapids, Michigan who enjoys living in West Michigan because of the changing seasons and variety of landscapes. Her soul is refreshed when walking on the hundreds of miles of trails around the state with her family and recording that beauty in her artwork.

ACWL-Nuveen classes are supported by the Nuveen Benevolent Trust, the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts, and CatchMark Technologies.
