Hey, I'm Liz! I'm so excited that you're here! I'm a Chicago-based business owner, teaching art classes, virtual paint parties & creating DIY paint kits to keep families everywhere busy and connecting!
I have a passion for sharing the joy of painting with others, and I truly love what I do! My teaching practice has taken me into schools, community art centers and summer camps all over Illinois, and now I've expanded with online teaching for kids and adults.
I'm a professional acrylic painter with a BFA in Art Education and a Masters in Special Education LBS1. I'm in my 7th year of overall art teaching experience, with 3 years experience as a high school Special Education teacher and case manager.
My teaching is always focused on diverse learners, and incorporating differentiated instruction however possible. I have experience teaching art to a wide range of students, including those with Anxiety, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, Emotional/ Behavior Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Developmental Disabilities.
I truly love teaching art, and love that I get to do it every day! I believe that everyone has something truly unique to share with the world, and that creativity must be praised and cultivated.
I'm on a mission to make art more accessible for all, one class at a time, by creating lessons that cater to my students' differing styles, no matter their age, ability, or background.
I believe in creating an environment of fun and exploration. Not lecture-based, but students and I learning and creating together.
I look forward to painting with you!
