As I proclaimed last week our artCamp teachers are the best! They’re experienced and creative and talented and caring and kind and fun and funny, too! They all love artCentral and artCamp and especially artCampers. They all know how to laugh
Every summer I hear adults say, “I wish you offered an artCamp for grownups!” “Well, maybe someday”, but for now I’m all in for artCamp 2017 for kids, and I’m over-the-top happy to have our outstanding lineup of artCamp educators. I introduced six artCamp staffers last week. Today you get to meet six more.
KAHLIE JONES – Kahlie attends Missouri Southern State University and enjoys crafting and making art in her free time. She was first an artCamper then an artCamp aide at artCentral. This will be Kahlie’s third year as an artCamp instructor. She loves giving artCampers the tools and the techniques to create.
TOM JONES – Tom is an accomplished and prolific artist in many media and holds both Bachelors and Master’s degrees in Art Education. He’s won several state and national awards for his cartoons and has instructed at many artCamps. Tom is well known for his watercolors of snowmen among Carthage landmarks.
TIFFANY KUNKLER – Tiffany grew up with artistic parents and is married to a ceramic artist. Originally from Springfield, she has a BFA from Missouri State University and a MFA from the University of Iowa. A popular teacher at her first artCamp last year, Tiffany knows how to teach and make learning fun!
JANE McCAULLEY – Jane taught elementary art for 35 years in Indiana before moving with her husband to Missouri eight years ago. She holds bachelors and master’s degrees from Ball State University. Currently she teaches classes in glass art at Spiva, in her home studio and at artCentral.
NICOLE MEYER-FORESMAN – A Kansas native and first time artCamp teacher with a BSED in Art Therapy, Nicole is in her 20th year teaching art at Girard High School. She enjoys participating in her hometown art community of Pittsburg and is inspired by the positive, magical vibe she finds at Hyde House.
SARAH SERIO – A native of Neosho, Sarah is a professional artist/printmaker and returning artCamp teacher who enjoys teaching kids to be creative thinkers. Sarah’s prints are shown regionally and exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. She serves on the Neosho Arts Council Board of Directors.
artCamp has great teachers and outstanding interns, too, who have special parts in artCamp’s big picture. With teacher guidance they offer assistance in artCamp classes and act as art-loving role models for artCampers. We have cool returning interns this year and cool new ones, too. I’ll tell you all about them soon.
