Javaughn Nader / Instructor

Javaughn "JEN" Nader is a colorful and vibrant artist based out of Atlanta who specializes in abstract paintings, using recycled materials and acrylic paint. With a background in visual communications, advertising, and graphic design, JEN always held a passion for art and creativity. She pursued creating a life out of the education and professional skills she obtained. During this process she found that a small hobby, something that felt totally natural, grew into a passion, and outlet for expression. Painting became her medium for story telling with every color, stroke, and shape. Gradually, her talent transformed into designing exclusive personalized art pieces for individuals as gifts. Now instead of living in the mass, and following the heard, she has created a life for herself outside of the average box. 

JEN's artwork is influenced by some of her favorite historic artists such as Pollock, Monet, van Gogh, Kahlo and Warhol, to name a few. Her personal style and creativity is developed through different levels of personal connection and energy. JEN's technique is a free flowing process that often includes finger painting, short brush strokes, textured materials and flowing lines. She wants people to understand that in your craft, or artistry, you do not have to appear to be perfect... your individual style is already perfect!
