Joyce Nelson Shellhart

Joyce Nelson Shellhart received her BA in Art from Mount Mercy University with a minor in Education. After teaching Art in the public high school, she was forced to retire early due to Multiple Sclerosis. But as Joyce says, “I love teaching and working with students. I may not be able to teach full time — but I haven’t given up the joy of watching the creative light glow in a student’s eye.” She has spent the past years teaching Art to 4H groups, Community Education Classes to all age groups, Workshops at Art Centers, Homeschool Academies, and private students. She is a practicing Artist and Author. Joyce lives on Lake Minnetonka with her poodle, HoneyDew, and Russian Tortoise, Dottie.
