Anna Harrison, Art Program Manager & Instructor


Instructor in Drawing, Pastels, Pen & Ink, Painting with Watercolor, Oils  and Acrylic

Anna has been studying classical art for over 15 years, first as a homeschooled student, then as an art instructor. She has spent the past decade teaching children and adults in fine arts using various media. Her passion lies in working in all the classical art forms and sharing her love of drawing and painting in the style of the old masters. In 2011, she became the first graduate from MSOA’s college program as a Certified Instructor, with a Masters in drawing and painting. 

New Creations Academy is the realization of her dream to teach fine art in a systematic way so students learn the time-tested classical methods, and express their artistic talents in a way that glorifies God.
