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 5 years and I love it! I have been married to my husband Steve for 5 years and we have a dog: Lily (Sheltie) and 3 cats: Luna, 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.
