My name is Adam Nowakowski. I grew up in Stonington, CT and attended Stonington High School. Upon graduating from high school I attended Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts and later went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting from The University of Texas. I have taught painting and drawing at several colleges and museums and I am eager to share my experiences with you. I have experienced the art admissions process from many vantages! Starting as a prospective student attending portfolio days and most recently as the Assistant Director of Continuing Education and Admissions at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. I believe in quality, high level, art education, and I strive to make the transition for incoming students to our school as enjoyable as possible. My favorite part of working at Lyme is being a part of an amazing artistic community: students, faculty, staff and visiting artists alike. It is very exciting to see the progression of student work from the first semester of year one to their senior thesis exhibition. My door is always open!
