Gabrielle Nelson

Gabrielle is originally from Nashville Tennessee. In 2015 she moved with her family to Jonesboro and is currently a freshman earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. Gabrielle has taken art lessons from the age of 8 years old and has always had a passion for art in all its forms. Her experiences with teaching at the Foundation of the Arts as a high school student encouraged her to further explore teaching as a lifetime profession. She plans to eventually earn her Masters in the Art of Teaching with an end goal of teaching college level courses in art history and studio art.
