Brandy Bergenstock began her art studies at Virginia Commonwealth University and then transfered to and graduated from James Madison University in 1998 with BS in Psychology and Art and a minor in African Studies. She began teaching students while still in college and continued to fullfill her life's dream of teaching art to children when she opened a small art cooperative with her kids & other homeschooled students . She now teaches at Williamsburg Montessori Middle School, Willamsburg Classical Academy Coorperative, and Peninsula Arts Homeschooling Center in Newport News.
- "I strive to teach art as a creative problem solving tool that emphasises process over product. I hope to teach students the tools and trick so that they can take what they learned in class and redo the experiements at home. I also want to give students unique art material exposure they aren't likely to have at home- reverse plaster casting, lithography, or mold and casting. I love creating art and hope my enthusiam is contangious to my students."
She has displayed art in Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Newport News and Hampton, Virginia. Her latest shows have mostly been with the Charles Taylor Art Gallery in Hampton, Va.
