Honoring Florence Birdwell

Florence Birdwell banner

  • NMTC 2024 is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Florence Birdwell — NATS member and legendary teacher.
  • Florence Birdwell taught people to be artists. She taught them to understand themselves, to empower themselves, to celebrate life, and pain, and love, and to communicate what they had to say to others.
  • We carry her inspiration forward - infusing this competition with her insight and her spirit so that we do more than acknowledge her legacy. We build on it.
