Instructor: Adara Wright
Adara has been drawing and painting ever since she could hold a pencil. When her drawings of people changed from sticks and circles to more anatomically correct figures at age six, she immediately knew art was an innate part of her soul. She drew on everything, from math homework to paper cups and napkins at restaurants.
Adara has completed both her undergraduate (B.S.) and graduate studies (M.F.A.) in Studio and Digital Arts, focusing on studio media as well as graphic design. Currently, when she’s not taking ballet classes or reading long novels, Adara teaches higher-education drawing online and works as the Academy’s Coordinator of Curriculum Development, helping plan and coordinate education and outreach programming.
Her passion is to use portraiture and mixed media paired with graphic design to tell stories through human emotion and experiences. Her desire is to use art to give others hope and joy.
