Hi, I’m Alyssa

I am an artist and art teacher and I've been teaching elementary artists in public schools since 2019. In 2023 I began expanding my teaching to people of all ages and experiences online through social media like instagram and youtube.

I created this school in 2024 because I wanted to reach people like you. I'm confident I can break down large concepts into manageable chunks and make art fun for everyone. I think you'll find me an approachable and friendly teacher as I guide you along toward success in each course.
