AJ

AJ

AJ has been a part of the PWAT Colorado Springs family since the summer of 2014. “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life” -Confucius A Few Fun Facts about AJ; Great at improv and multiple accents but cant remember a joke to tell for the life of her. Left handed in her right mind. Gets tattoos instead of therapy. Is the epitome of an “outgoing-introvert”. Wings most things in life, including eyeliner.

Kim Keenan

Kim Keenan

Kim has been teaching Art in Widefield School District 3 for the past 20 years. Her feeling is that art is for everyone, and as humans we have a need to create. "My favorite part of working at Painting With A Twist is seeing how happy people are with their paintings. Many people don't believe they can do it, and it is my job to show them that they can!"
