Artist, illustrator Christopher Nick will visit Northern Hills on Monday and Tuesday May 14-15

Originally from Oklahoma, Mr. Nick received his formal art training at the Atelier LeSueuer in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The Atelier school system is based on the curriculum of training the artist in the tradition of the old masters so his visit will complement the Meet the Masters Curriculum.

 

Christopher Nick continued his training by apprenticing in the studio of national illustrator Mike Wimmer and has branched out on his own as a full time professional artist. He has worked with publishing houses and advertising campaigns and his images have been published on book covers, children’s books, figurines, textiles, puzzles, ceramics, calendars, greeting cards and magazines.

 

In 2001 Christopher was chosen among Oklahoma artists by First Lady Kathy Keating to paint the state’s Official Oklahoma Governor’s Christmas Card.  The original oil titled ‘Believe’ is now in the collection of the Governor’s Mansion.

 

Mr. Nick’s paintings have been exhibited throughout the United States and are owned by Hollywood celebrities, the Oklahoma State Capitol Building, corporate headquarters and many private collections.

 

While at Northern Hills he will display sample canvas art and present a slide presentation about his craft and the profession.  In addition sample art will be available to purchase; things like pencils, stickers, bookmarks, and more; ranging from .25 to $15.00.

 

He will meet with ALL of our students while he is here.
