Contributing Partners: Nishan Patel (M.A. '12)

Art teacher, New Jersey’s West Windsor Plainsboro High School South

The Vallavbhaiand Savitaben Patel Foundation has endowed a scholarship for master’s degree students in TC’s Art & Art Education Program

Favorite TC professor:

Olga Hubard. In her studio art class I could let go and explore. When I painted, it was OK to sometimes not have an idea in mind; to let the feeling and emotions flow. Now I impart this idea to my own art students.

Key TC experience:
Connecting with and learning from other passionate individuals who want to make an impact through the magical medium of art.

Why I support TC:

Because it is a rare place where exploration is encouraged to help seek one’s full potential.
