Instructor 1

I am a local artist born and raised here in Denver! I have been painting since 2013 and I have a BA in Studio Arts.  My main medium is oil paint, although I dabble in acrylics from time to time.  I love painting large pieces with vibrant, contrasting colors all while exploring the human anatomy. Most of my work is inspired through mere impulse; spontaneous thoughts and ideas rooted from everyday life. I enjoy sharing my gift with others and helping people learn the true art of painting!

Instructor 2

I am a self taught artist born and raised in Colorado. I am a mother of 3 children whom inspire me to challenge my artwork. I have dabbled in many different mediums since I was very young, but, I enjoy acrylics on canvas above all else. I was recently featured in the opening of the Colfax museum. My art is focused on going back to my roots and being able to inspire others to connect through my paintings. I am inspired by natural beauty, women empowerment, and the African culture. My goal is to create art work that makes people ask questions.

An emerging visual artist that was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She is a former student at MSU Denver where she studied Secondary Education with a concentration in Mathematics. During March of this year, used some art supplies that were a gift to her and started painting to pass time. This was a pivotal moment for her, because the euphoric state that painting created a new spark. That spark is what led her to explore her artistic talent and pour more into her craft. She chooses to paint whatever empowers women, whether that is a woman’s body or painting what symbolizes strength and the emotions they feel. Her paintings are mostly acrylic on canvas and she plans on exploring other mediums like oil and gouache as well. Her main goal is to be able to uplift, heal, and spread love through her art, for helping others is how she fulfills her purpose.
