20 years and counting! All of our fine art experiences are instructed by Pamela Palmer, an artist who was born and educated in Canada. Pamela has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a major in painting and a minor in drawing from the University of Windsor and a Diploma of Interior Design from St. Clair College. Her works have been accepted into the government collection of Ontario and into juried shows at the Windsor Gallery of Art. Currently she is one of the regular artists displaying work at The Cause and Affect Gallery in Fenton. Palmer has been the 4th grade art teacher at the Independence El. and art instructor at the Early Childhood Learning Center for the Young 5’s program in Clarkston.

The Artist’s Apprentice has received a huge amount of recognition since its beginnings through the Youth Enrichment Program in Clarkston, Michigan and has branched out into Lake Orion, Fenton, Davisburg and Rochester.

As part of The Artist’s Apprentice program, students will be working to improve upon their personal best, an ongoing mindset that, hopefully continues throughout a lifetime.
