About the Instructor

Heather Maher has a passion for art that she loves to share with her students. She feels the most valuable lesson that a student can learn is to develop their own style. She tries to encourage them to be curious and to learn different techniques so they are able to develop the material skills and craft necessary to develop that style.

Maher has a Fine Arts degree from SUNY Geneseo and a Business of Art and Marketing certificate from Buffalo State. She has been teaching students ranging in age from toddler to adult for 21 years; 19 of those years have been with Albright Knox. She also teaches part time at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. In addition to teaching, she takes on commissioned pieces and does freelance illustrations. She works mostly with paint (watercolor and acrylic) and graphite. She was honored to be named “Teaching Artist of the Year” with the Arts in Education Institute a few years ago and continues to strive for excellence in the projects and lessons that she develops for her students.
