Kate Ashton, instructor for Tuesday and Friday classes
Learn under the guidance of owner and artist, Kate Ashton. Kate brings her years of experience in making a living as an artist to this amazing group of artists. There are many talented art teachers, but few who are called to teach, to mentor, and to assist artists in taking their art to the marketplace. Being with an extraordinary arts community has been a great inspiration. Kate was honored to be one of the finalists chosen by "Professional Artists Magazine," as Mentor of the Year and placed 12th in the nation.
Ann Golumbuk, instructor for Wednesday classes
Ann was born in Enid, Oklahoma, and educated at the University of Oklahoma, with a degree in Interior Design. She moved to San Diego in 1984, where she lives today with her husband and three children. While her artistic impression was constant throughout her life, her recent foray into the art world was developed over the past 15 years working as a volunteer art teacher for school children at the elementary level. During this time she also worked as the prop, costume and backdrop designer for the elementary school’s performances and directed the art and talent shows for many years. In her commitment to being a green artist, Ann is able to create unique paintings by using recycled materials, finding items of interest in her environment, and using every drop of paint to add dimension to her paintings.
