ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Melanie Delgado’s paintings have been described as explosive, wildly playful and bold. Perhaps this also describes her personality. Melanie started painting in her early 30’s. While living in California she met her now husband, Marc Delgado. He wondered why she wasn’t making any art of her own. She had worked her whole life looking for ways to help children express themselves. Now Melanie paints in her basement in Glenford, NY. Before moving to Glenford, she lived at the Byrdcliﬀe Artist Colony for three years. She discovered R&F pigment sticks while taking her one and only painting class at the Woodstock School of Art. Soon after that she starting instructing a class for teen artists at the school. Melanie feels her momentum and continued commitment to painting is a direct result of her connection to the community. She’s participated in many group shows in Woodstock, Kingston and Yonkers. Melanie has also had a few solo gigs. She is currently showing new work at Pinkwater Gallery in Kingston and is trying to keep up with her young daughter Mary Scout.
