Meet the Teachers

Kathryn Strong
Kathryn Strong, Art

With a BS in Art Education Specializing in Painting and Drawing, Kathryn is a licensed K-12 art teacher and taught in the public school system in both South Carolina and Ohio for a total of 8 years. Kathryn then went on to manage an art gallery for 2 years while teaching private lessons for all ages and painting commissioned pet portraits in her spare time. Her family now resides in Pennsylvania where she is a stay at home mom still painting when she can.


In each lesson, Kathryn will focus on one or more of the elements and principles of design while creating a fun step-by-step project that can be adapted for any age/skill level! Students will also get to explore artists and culture from all over the world from past to present! Parents are encouraged to join in on the fun and create their own masterpiece! So grab your supplies and lets get started!
