My name is Emma Hapner. I studied at the New York Academy of Art to receive my Master’s of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. I am originally from Indiana and received my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Ball State University. I work primarily in oil paint on canvas to create figurative works, reclaiming the language of classical painting from a woman’s perspective.
I have taught art classes at the David Owsley Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Art Center, and One River School: NY. I believe that art is one of the most important forms of self-expression and my goal as a teacher is to always help my students feel inspired and empowered by giving them the tools they need to succeed.
