Instructor Dan Thompson proved once again that art is a universal language.
Thompson, invited to China by The Artists Association of Liaoning Province, was a lecturer and workshop leader at "DIALOG-PEAK,” a symposium on realist art.

From an instructor to an alumna to a current student, Studio Incamminati, School for Contemporary Realist Art, will have a strong presence at TRAC2015, The International Representational Art Conference.
An innovative approach to the traditional high school senior portrait has earned Studio Incamminati the Promise Award from Camden's Urban Promise Academy. More importantly, the program has given these youths the rare - and empowering - experience of sitting for a portrait artist, something usually reserved for the rich, famous and powerful.
But, mostly, it was a chance look to the future.
Studio Incamminati's signature support event, "Nelson Shanks: His Vision in Our Hands," brought hundreds to the iconic Ballroom at the Ben for a celebration of the school's accomplishments and glimpse of things to come.
