Thank you!

Thank you so much for these past years. Your site has always been very informative, and invaluable to the community. I do hope that Nexdoor will be keeping some of your format intact since much of their focus is not only very neighbourhood specific, but seems to be primarily personal posts, as opposed to news, events, listings, crimewatch, etc...that I have always turned to your site for. Thanks so much again for all the work you've done for the community. Cheers, and best of luck with your new ventures!

Today on our blog we check in with student Nancy Shell, who was named a top 20 finalist in Let’s Connect: Philly Artists Take on the Barnes last month. Read on to learn how Fleisher classes John Sevcik allowed her to express herself more fully.

    From Frozen to Flourishing - Fleisher Art Memorial
    When Nancy Shell first started taking classes at Fleisher, she felt frozen. Shell, who is disabled, had recently lost her job and grew up in an abusive household in which pursuit of a job took priority over artistic exploration. Though she was intimidated by the talent she saw around her in Fleisher's painting studios, Shell was harboring a secret.
