Artist in Residence
Maarten Vanderstoel has been teaching aspiring artists for close to 20 years at Van Grow Art Studio, in Fort Worth, Texas. He has inspired creativity for young and old alike. Many of the students have found their passion for art through the leadership of Mr. Maarten and his wife Miss Hanna. Right before the pandemic hit, he and his wife closed the doors to Van Grow, but Mr. Maarten has transitioned into a traveling art teacher and rebranded to “Mr. Maarten on the Gogh!” Instead of artists going to the studio for instruction and guidance, he takes the studio to the student for either in-person or virtual study.
