Hi there my name is Nicole Slater and I have been creating art for 45 years! I received my art degree at Stanislaus State University. I opened my loft to the public in 2014 because I had a strong desire to help others with their art journey an creative process. My long career in art has allowed me to help guide, mentor and support other artists and I love that! needs and desires. "The Artists's Loft"-my oasis is located above Slater's Furniture store which happens to be my husbands and families business. I welcome you to join my group workshops that are offered once a month or a private one on one art lesson.
In December of 2015, I realized the need for a unique space where, in addition to creating my own works of art, people in the community could come together in a fun artist environment. I also wanted to design a space for individuals to learn art, techniques and meet with other creative people. This was when The Artist's loft was born. I currently head courses in Group Workshops, Team Building Art Programs and Private Art Lessons for all art levels from ages 4 and up. When it comes to art instruction, I love teaching along with the lasting creative connection that is fostered between my students and myself. I believe that every experience with others is an opportunity to learn something new. During my one-on-one instruction, just as I do in my workshops, I will share my painting perspective, my knowledge, and my experience with you. The thing I love most about the teaching process is meeting you where you are artistically and helping you move forward with your own personal style of creating your own works of art. Book a class and come spend some time with me in the studio!
