Nilda Comas Workshops: USA - Italy - Puerto RIco
Nilda Maria Comas was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She studied humanities and philosophy at the University of Puerto Rico, studied fine arts at Sam Houston State University, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Houston. Comas attended the New York Academy of Art where she received the highest scholarship given by the Academy and graduated cum laude with a Master of Fine Arts.

Comas divides her time between Pietrasanta, Italy, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, teaching in her workshops the techniques she learned in Pietrasanta, Italy where she worked alongside artists such as Lucchesi, Harry Marinsky, Stanley Bleifield, Ivan Theimer and others. It was in Pietrasanta that Comas met Joseph Sheppard, who became not only a mentor and teacher for 10 years, but also a most admired friend.
The techniques of master artist Nilda Comas can now be studied in her workshops in the USA, Italy and Puerto Rico. Join Nilda in a trip to Italy or Puerto Rico, study under a master fine artist, visit historical places, visit the art of the old masters and meet the next generation of living masters. And yes, Nilda speaks Spanish, English, Italian and also French so communication is not an issue either in her workshops or on trips around the cities.
Private instruction is also available.
