INSTRUCTOR PROFILES

  Art Studio Coordinator - Greg Scott
        "Born in Macon Georgia in 1969, I came to Charlotte in 1980. As a child I worked with my Grandmother who was a ceramic craftsperson in Lizella Georgia. My exposure to the arts and culture in Charlotte through school programs and museum visits was the catalyst for my interest in painting and sculpture. After graduating from South Mecklenburg high school I attended CPCC and transferred to East Carolina University School of Art.
        "Upon Graduating from ECU with a BFA in painting in 1994 I returned to Charlotte to practice my disciplines and work for Paramount Parks as a scenic painter and eventually a designer. I’m now raising my family in Charlotte with my wife, Adrienne Dellinger also a working artist, with our two children Grace and Quinn.  I am seeking more gallery representation and enjoying longer studio sessions producing new work in painting and clay. I have never stopped my explorations in clay and have been teaching ceramics for various non-profit organizations for over 12 years along with my studio work in clay, paint and digital art.

        "I have experience as a painter, ceramic artist and designer. I am an emerging artist and in the past five years I have had the opportunity to complete 4 public art installations. The most recent was the Central Avenue Streetscape project installed in late September 2009, a collaboration with the community of Merry Oaks, Arts and Science Council and the Public Art Commission."
