Diane Green is a painter and teacher, and the founder of The Green Studio School in NYC. She received her MFA degree from Yale University and taught painting and drawing at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia for a few years. Over time, she realized that there was a need to teach in a way that was rich in its offerings and that also encouraged each individual student's unique artistic expression. The Green Studio School is based upon these principles. The school's philosophy celebrates each individual's approach to life, using art process to reveal personal vision that empowers and delights.
Diane has also had the good fortune of working with Taoist Master Nan Lu, Dr. Steven Weiss of the Medicine Lodge Clinic, Donna Eden of Energy Medicine, shamanic healer James Philip, and numerous other energy workers. She brings her deep knowledge of the two worlds of Art and Energy and weaves them together for a unique combination of courses and workshops unlike any others.
Thomas Bosket teaches at Parsons the New School and has taught workshops on: ColorBots (color theory taught through basic robotics), and Exploring Perception Through Interpretation (an interactive drawing exploration). Finding that creativity and art were much more than exclusive objects to be hung on walls, he began to develop workshops that integrated the creative spirit into everyday life. These workshops are beneficial to any life learner.
Thomas studied painting at Parsons and received his M.F.A. from Yale University in 1995. He is a NYS licensed massage therapist and has studied with vocal coach Claude Stein to connect his “thinking body” with his feeling voice. These exploration have led to an integration of body, mind and spirit in service to the teaching of individual creative expression. One student said this “cocktail” teaches you “the why we make art instead of the how that so many teachers focus on”. Please see his latest ventures at ENGN.
