This class is taught by Florbela Nienaber. Florbela attended Valencia College in Florida pursuing an education in Fine Arts. In addition she attended local community schools expanding her art skills and mediums. A mentorship with a Disney Imagineer kickstarted her career in sculpting for Disney and Universal Studios. Since then she’s explored other art forms while raising her children. Inspired by children’s literature, she took to creative writing. She got her start writing puppet scripts for her church, which later transitioned to short stories. Florbela has attended children’s literature writing & illustration conferences and has participated in writing critiques groups. During her children’s elementary years she taught art to budding artists in the community, and homeschooling groups. On weekdays she homeschools her two girls, but some evenings and weekends she opens her studio to art & pottery classes for both children and adults in Kernersville.
