Walt Bartman teaches landscape, still life, and figure painting classes and workshops, here and abroad. His career spans four decades. He received a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Art History from American University and he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study in Belgium and Holland. his philosophy of painting centers on personal interpretation and the unique approach to the ordinary. For him, a great painting includes all the arts. He works with all levels of students and challenges them to "see" more. Walt's own work is representational in subject, but with an abstract approach to seeing and expressing his thoughts on canvas. He is a colorist and he shares his knowledge with his students.

Alice Hoxie has a combined degree from The George Washington University in Art History & Fine Arts. For several years she managed Gallerie Letailler, on Capitol Hill which featured Post impressionist work from l' Ecole de Rouen. She always has a hand in the Art Community, serving on boards and committees of many organizations. Since moving to Frederick from Washington, DC and before opening the Griffin, she  coordinated pop up Art Shows in vacant commercial spaces combining her profession as a Real Estate agent of 25 years with her love of art. She is also Broker owner of Frederick Town Realty. She and Walt Bartman met in his Cow Painting workshop in Middletown Valley.
