Mrs. Marissa Oprandy

Hi,

My name is Marissa Oprandy, I am the Art Teacher at MXMS. In 2016 I earned a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art Studio and Secondary Education from William Paterson University.

I am originally from New Jersey and have been living in North Carolina for 3 years and have been loving it! I have been married to my husband Steve for 3 years and we have a Shetland Sheepdog named Lily and Maine Coon cat named Luna and we just adopted two kittens Stella and Archer! Some of my favorite things include Mellow Mushroom Pizza, Starbucks, chocolate, cooking/baking, and Netflix. 

As an artist I have worked with many mediums including acrylic paint, oil paint, pencil, charcoal, and watercolors. My favorite medium is charcoal because you create a lot of contrast but it's challenging to keep your paper clean. I have a realistic approach to creating art and my favorite artist is Chuck Close.
