Tyra is a super trained artist. She has completed a week long training in New Orleans in art instruction, has her degree in art education, and is a High School teacher during the day. During the day (still) and night, and weekend...OK everyday, she is an artist at the studio. You can not ask a question too many times, she is ready for it! Come on in for some fun, or just painting to relax, she is flexible that way. See you soon!
Sara is a trained instructor of painting at night, and is a fur baby super hero during the day. In addition to being an artist at the studio, she makes some of the most beautiful and delicious cakes I have ever eaten. Sara is also a groomer at Go Fetch. Her love for animals is unmatched (Artist Geni might disagree)! Get excited for Sara's classes, the combination of animal lover (CAKE) and painter (again...CAKE)...you really can't go wrong.
Artist Jayanne loves mermaids, flowers and fun! She has several years of experience being a painter at Painting With A Twist. She gets you. And she can show you how to be brilliant with a paint brush.
She also loves Scentsy and is a consultant - so if you want some, click on her website!
Jerica hails to us from Las Vegas! She paints AND does digital art prints of pets, check out her instagram when you get a chance. Some interesting tidbits about Jerica: she used to play beach volleyball (junior olympics), coached club volleyball, AND has been a referee. Come on in either Wednesday or Friday nights (or whenever you see her name) to meet Artist Jerica!
Kassie is a student at the UM working toward her teaching certificate in elementary education and will be the BeSt TeAcHeR evah when she is done. Kass has been with our studio for over a year and is a superstar! Need some words of affirmation? A hug? A pat on the back for a job well done? She is your girl! Kass teaches many of our kids classes and private parties. You will see her as a floor artist for our adult classes.
Eliza has pretty much grown up in the studio. She knows just about everything. You will mostly see her as a floor artist, office hours, or pop-in-and-paint.
When Mary Pat retired from teaching, we scooped her up! You will see Mary Pat during office hours and Pop in and Paint. Some fun facts about Mary Pat: she was born in Germany, taught middle school at MCPS schools, and has traveled all over the place. She also leaves us delicious treats at the studio. We don’t know what we would do without her. Probably starve and be unable to find things. Pop-in and meet Mary Pat if you get the chance!
Kim is another integral part to the functioning of our studio! Kim does office hours, Pop-in-and-Paint, is a floor artist, and is also an MCPS retired teacher. Kim is very creative and bursting with great ideas. Need some help with planning a party? Kim is your girl.
Brian is part owner of the studio. He owns the not-fun part. Like bookkeeping and hauling stuff. You will see him occasionally assisting classes. Don’t ask him how to paint. He does not know how. BUT he can refill your paint, tell you your painting looks good, and wash paint brushes. He is the best and does not get enough credit for the fun that happens in the studio. THANK YOU BRIAN!
