Al Maciag

Al Maciag was born in 1950. He graduated with a Master's Degree in Art Education from Central Michiagn University in 1974. He can be found teaching for the last twenty-five years in the Frankenmuth School District. As an avid drawer, Alan has filled numerous sketch books with visual memories of past vacations and camping trips throughout Michigan. These drawings have been very valuable subject matter in many of his acrylic and oil paintings. His numerous commissions can be found in many private collections throughout the United States.

As a "plenair" artist you can find him sketching at a campsite one afternoon and then painting a "House Portrait" on location the next two days. Alan's interest in all forms of architecture and its relationship with its natural surroundings is a reoccuring theme in his art.
