Dan Thompson

I was born in Alexandria, Virginia, and graduated from the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC. I earned my MFA from the Graduate School of Figurative Art of the New York Academy of Art, and supplemented my training with several additional years of private study and studio apprenticeships along the east coast of the United States.

I have been awarded two grants from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and have twice received the Ethel Lorraine Bernstein Memorial Award for Excellence in Painting from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. In 2001, I was awarded the Best of Show Grand Prize in the American Society of Portrait Artist’s International Portrait Competition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

I am Faculty Chair of the Certificate of Fine Arts program at the New York Academy of Art. In 2006 I co-founded the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York. In 2008, I co-founded the Janus Collaborative School of Art in New York. I have instructed at the Art Students League of New York, and have served on the faculty of Parsons School of Design and the National Academy of Design.

I have demonstrated and taught workshops in San Francisco, Seattle, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Washington, D.C, Virginia, Sarasota, FL, Massachusetts, Oregon, Boston and Colorado. I have also demonstrated and instructed internationally in Toronto, Canada, Subiaco, Italy, China and in the Provence region of France. In 2007, I was selected an ARC Living Master Artist.

My work can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States, and in Canada, Europe, and the Middle East.
