This is my first blog post so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Krista and I am an artist, mother and teacher. I've create this website to share some of the work I and my students create in my studio, Riverside Art Studio. I've been drawing and painting since I was a little girl. Art and creativity are very important to me and things that I love to share. I have a Bachelor's in Fine Art, a Master's in Art Education as well as 15 years experience teaching art in a public school. I left my teaching job so that I could have more time to devote to my family, but I found that I missed the creative process of developing art projects and teaching to children. I started Riverside Art Studio so that I could do both. Check back here often to see pictures from my art classes, arts and craft tutorials and tips on including more art and creativity to your everyday life.
