Nicholas Jacques believes in an interactive teaching philosophy, and has brought that accessible style to the classroom since he joined the Cabrini faculty in 2007.
“When I teach, I am not teaching ‘art’ in the traditional sense of the word, because art is the result of many different factors, both controlled and uncontrolled, conscious and unconscious,” Jacques says.
“I am teaching the fundamental skills and concepts that enable my students to understand how to begin building their own visual language.”
At Cabrini, Jacques has taught
In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Jacques is director of the Grace and Joseph Gorevin Fine Arts Gallery at Cabrini.
“The College’s art gallery is a great space where we can showcase the work of professional artists, not only for Cabrini students, faculty, and staff, but also for the surrounding community,” he says.
Jacques holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, a bachelor’s in painting from the University of Hartford, and a bachelor’s in communication design from Kutztown University.
His work hangs in a number of private collections throughout the country and can be seen at www.nicholasjacques.com.
In his spare time, Jacques is either in his studio, spending time with his family, or engaging in activities that he deems “too interesting to list here on this website.”
Jacques resides with his wife and daughter in the Philadelphia suburbs.
