Alyssa DeLaBruere is a local artist, educator, and mother of three who has made the Northeast Kingdom her home for over 20 years. After many years of teaching art both privately and at United Christian Academy in Newport, Alyssa has now opened her own "atelier" or artist's workshop in Newport. An accomplished painter (acrylic, watercolor, and silk) and teacher of fine art, art history, and elementary education, Alyssa is excited to welcome the community into her studio to view her own work and partake in a wide range of art classes in various mediums for budding artists of all ages. Alyssa attended the University of Vermont where she studied fine art and art history, then continued her education further at Johnson State College where she obtained duel certification in both elementary and art education.
Alyssa is passionate about sharing her love for art and artists with others, nurturing the creative talents of her students. In the summer of 2012, Alyssa had the opportunity to attend "Les Tapies", an art teacher's residential workshop in the South of France sponsored by TASIS, the American School in Switzerland. In 2013, she was honored to return to Les Tapies as a guest artist and instructor. You can view more of Alyssa's work and see the current class offerings at atelierartstudio.com.
