Meet the Instructors

Molly Nelko

A native of Mobile, AL, Molly Nelko has joined Kentuck’s staff as our Programming Assistant! She attended Springhill College and received a BA in fine art with a focus on oil painting and printmaking. Her work has been in individual exhibitions from Portland, OR to Hilton Head SC, and can be found online. Molly currently lives in Tuscaloosa with her husband, three children, and cat Quill. She has experimented with many different forms of art, and some of her favorites are encaustic, tessellations, and ink wash. Molly currently works in her studio regularly, but her focus has become more about enjoying creative projects with her children.

Leigh Clark

Leigh Clark is a recent graduate from the University of Alabama where she received her master's degree in art history. She is a Montgomery, Alabama native and has attended schools like Auburn University Montgomery (B.A) and Booker T. Washington Magnet High School where she was able to continue her growth as both an artist and art historian. Leigh's art interests include painting, drawing, and art produced during the Renaissance and Baroque time period. During her free time, she is a watercolor painter and loves attempting new media.  She has volunteered with the Tuscaloosa Magnet School, previously interned at the Kentuck Art Center, and is a member of Tide 4 Christ (a Christian organization at the University of Alabama). Art is not only her interest but is one of her areas of great passion. Leigh hopes to not only share the knowledge and skills she has acquired but encourage others to unleash their inner artist as well.
