About the instructor
Kristen is a graphic designer, artist, and art instructor. She studied Art Education at Middle Tennessee State University because it seemed to be the most natural path: she loved art and she loved helping others. Being a part of bringing other's ideas to life and giving students confidence to move their art forward is one of her greatest joys. Her work and styles vary across multiple mediums: from mixed media abstracts to expressive acrylics to plein air oil landscapes to modern calligraphy and hand lettering.
MESSAGE FROM KRISTEN:
So glad you are reading this—it means I may be meeting you soon! My first college art instructor asked who had never taken an art class before and I was the only student who raised their hand. It almost paralyzed me in fear to the point of quitting but I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life. Since then, I have discovered a love for working with beginners and art enthusiasts. As with all of my classes, my biggest intention is to provide my students confidence and tools so they can move their art forward by leaps and bounds. So let's explore together!
