Dan believes you should have fun when you can, and as often as you can. If it's a dreary Tuesday night, why not paint with us and have fun? Painting and laughing have a much higher fun quotient than sitting around watching a Friends rerun, in your dirty living room, and you have laundry to do. Dan loves painting and watching others create art. He specifically asked us to ask you to sign up for one of his classes--like, now, cause his laundry is piling up.
Kendall is a Junior at the University of Minnesota studying Fine Art and Psychology. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she came to the Minneapolis area two years ago looking for a new city to explore and eventually call home. Since she was a child, Kendall has loved creating art and being a creative thinker. Shortly after arriving to Minnesota and having her artwork published in a campus magazine, she decided to focus her studies towards a degree in art therapy. Kendall believes that everyone has the ability to express themselves in an artistic way and she loves to watch people grow and discover new things about themselves through art. As well as painting, she also enjoys drawing, photography, ceramics, super hero coloring books, and making over-the-top tree ornaments for her family's Christmas competition. In addition, she is a biker, coffee lover, thrift store shopper, Game of Thrones fan, and mini golf enthusiast. She strives to bring energy and enthusiasm to every Painting with a Twist class and have tons of fun painting and having a fabulous time.
Meg was born and raised in central Wisconsin and relocated to St. Paul in 2015 to work as an elementary art teacher. As a student at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, she decided to pursue a degree in Studio Art because she loves working in a variety of art media, including painting, textiles, printmaking, ceramics and cut paper. Meg has nearly 10 years of experience teaching in a wide range of settings, including teaching English for two years in southeast Asia, working with at-risk youth, and creating magic as a camp counselor and art instructor in both Wisconsin and New York. She is also an avid traveler, writer, tarot card reader, runner, Netflix binger, and Humane Society volunteer. She embraces every class at Painting with a Twist in the spirit of legendary artist Bob Ross, and loves that she gets to show people how to paint "happy little trees."
