OLD IN ART SCHOOL A Memoir of Starting Over

by | Read by Nell Painter

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Nell Painter describes her unusual decision to pursue art despite being deemed too "old" by some of the faculty at her art school, Rhode Island School of Design. After a prestigious career as a historian at Princeton University, she sets out on a path of continued learning. Through her narration, we witness her journey toward realizing her dream of being a painter. In the memoir genre, the author is often the preferred narrator as the confessional nature of these works is enhanced when recounted by the person who wrote them. Painter shares the ups and downs of enrolling in a new discipline in her 60s and her eventual successes. Listeners suffer and celebrate with her through each dip and rise along the way.
