Patt Bacon

Patt Bacon passed away September 2, 2018. Patt taught Watercolor at the Visual Arts Center (VAC) for beginners, intermediate and advanced students beginning in 2006 and has been a cherished member of the VAC family ever since.  Her students became her friends, and many followed her classes year after year.  Everyone who knew Patt was met with her warm and welcoming nature and fun loving personality.  She served on the VAC Board of Directors for more than 10 years. Patt was a mentor and friend to many. She will be missed. Our thoughts are with her family.  

Patt’s exploration of art began while growing up in Michigan with a love of crayons. Covering her mom’s kitchen with still life compositions of any fruit or vegetable became her passion. For twenty-four years, Patt taught art in the public schools and art guilds throughout northern Michigan. Patt received numerous awards and participated in art exhibits from Michigan to Florida and has paintings in private collections across the US.
