Nils Osmar

Nils Osmar was born in Alaska, and grew up in a wilderness area on the southern coast.  His parents were homesteaders on the Kenai Peninsula, near the Cook Inlet. He grew up in a tiny little town called Clam Gulch.  (His mother named Clam Gulch when she was its postmaster.) He now lives in Seattle. Nils has made his living in the arts for over 30 years, working as a writer, artist, teacher, and filmmaker.  He currently teaches through the ASUW Experimental College, and is the Director of a private educational program, Classesandworkshops.com. His philosophy as a teacher is that, "Everyone is creative. We all have an impulse to write, draw, paint and express ourselves in a wide range of creative ways.  If you're interested in a subject area, you can learn it.  Classes and instruction can help." Nils values teaching at the Experimental College, Classesandworkshops.com, and similar programs, where the focus is on learning in a fun environment, without the pressure to students of worrying about grades.
