Meet The Instructor
Jonathan Ottke is an artist living next to a lake near Washington DC, where he walks and observes the world and people every day. He lived in many places including by a chocolate factory in Waldenbuch, Germany, the Washington DC area, Nairobi, Kenya near the equator, and Vienna, Austria. His art is deeply affected by his travels and by his training as a biologist. He sees art as a spiritual practice that is a communication, a dance even, between the creator, the universe and the viewer that allow both to become better people. He studied art at the Academy of Art in Braunschweig and the University of Virginia. He continued his studies as a guest student in Vienna, Austria with the artist Arnulf Rainer. He has displayed his art at many exhibitions in the Washington DC region.
