Conni Gordon was destined for stardom from birth. Born into a show business family, Conni was always a vivacious and charismatic personality, acting both as Master-of-Ceremonies and as the pianist for performers booked by her theatrical agent family.
Her bigger onstage career developed in the U.S. Marine Corps in WWII. When an entertainment act didn’t appear, she showcased her ability to entertain and improvise by teaching mass group of 50,000 Marines to “Create Art-in-Minutes” in a show called “Draw Your Own Conclusions.” The patented 4-step Conni Gordon Method© was developed from that astounding experience.
Conni’s formal fine arts and philosophical studies continued at Columbia University and Ecole des Beaux-Arts in France. After offical recognition from Guinness Book of World Records as the ”World’s Most Prolific Art Teacher,” conventions booked her to prove their groups could be more than they ever dreamed possible.
She has hosted and/or been a repeated guest on both National and international TV programs, including NBC, ABC, CBS, The 700 Club, PBS, BBC, and The Learning Channel. Her activities led to feature stories in the Wall Street Journal, National Enquirer, Parade Magazine, The Miami Herald, and The London Standard.
She holds the record for being on the “Tonight Show” since it started. She taught Steve Allen, Jack Paar, plus 4 times with Johnny Carson and 6 times with David Letterman.
Widely respected and admired, Conni has been blessed to have worked with the best in the art industry over several decades. Along the way, she’s influenced many lives.
Conni has helped numerous Foundations raise money for charitable causes, including Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Inner City Games, Miami Children’s Hospital, Miami’s Humane Sociaty, Adopt-A-Pet, and the Cancer Society Fund.
She continues to inspire others through corporate conventions, Paint-Along-Parties, televised events, and charity fund raisers.
