Elsie DiNardo Dresch


Energetic and enthusiastic, Elsie Dresch advises new students to do three things. First, join a local art group so you will have friends and associates with the same interest and get support in your community. Second, subscribe to two art Elsie Dresch magazines of your choice selecting one in the mediums in which you work, and one of general interest such as Art News or American Art Review. Third, paint every day or do something directly related to art and painting, so that you get and remain focused on being serious about your work.

Elsie Dresch teaches workshops in North Carolina, Florida and Georgia where she has been living for many years.

Elsie's art education began in Philadelphia at 13, when she studied at the Graphic Sketch Club then attended the Fleisher Memorial School of Art in addition to studying with several contemporary artists in workshops throughout the southeast.
