Art Verve Academy

Learn, Create, & Cultivate the Visual Arts!

Stacy Egan

I discovered my passion for drawing and painting relatively late in life, after taking an early retirement from a 22-year career in physics and engineering. I have always admired those who could create art, but it took me awhile to believe that I too could learn to do it. Just like with anything that can be learned, I discovered that with desire and daily practice came improvement until I saw both skill and passion for art flourish within me.

Aside from a couple of introductory watercolor classes in 2003, I am self-taught. It all began in November 2011 when I bought my first sketchbook and sketched the San Francisco Peaks as viewed from my mother-in-law's hospital room. Shortly after that, I committed to a challenge to sketch every day and did so for 75 consecutive days, and I haven't stopped since! It's been such an exciting journey of artistic growth for me these last five years, and I want to share it with you and help you to grow too!

​"I had put down my art interest for more than two years. I needed something to 'kick-start' it again. I took two classes from Art Verve Academy. They were 'Drawing the Human Head' with Christy Olsen and 'Exploring Watercolor Textures' with Stacy Egan. Both of these classes & their instructors were very, very good & just what I needed to 'kick-start' my art activities again. I would strongly recommend these classes & the Art Verve Academy!!!"​​
