hi, I'm kaitlyn!

I'm an art teacher, artist and mom of 2 based in Pittsburgh, PA. I have been teaching elementary art for over 15 years, but have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I began my career teaching in sunny Charleston SC, where I had the honor of being named Rookie Teacher of the Year. During my time teaching, I was lucky enough to team up with one of my best friends to paint vibrant murals throughout the state for local schools and businesses. After 10-years of teaching in the south, my family and I made the decision to come back to my hometown where I now teach at my alma mater. When I’m not teaching you can find me spending quality time with my family, walking our rescue lab Maddie and painting in my sketchbook.

Throughout course of my teaching career, I have had the opportunity to teach visual art to thousands of children of all abilities and backgrounds. I am unwavering in my belief that everyone can be an artist and that the arts play a crucial role in a child’s well-being. I live for the “ah-ha” moments and the excitement that appears on a child’s face when they have created something they are truly proud of. I love transforming spaces to create immersive art show experiences that allow students’ art to shine. I am passionate about providing high quality art education for adapted/autistic support/life skills art classes that are student centered, sensory and process based. The joy that teaching art has given me over the years is unparalleled and I look forward to continuing to reach students and teachers all over the world as I expand my lessons, resources, and inspiration. I can’t thank you enough for here!
