Kelsey received her degree in Art Education from Penn State and taught elementary art for five years. The immense creativity and joy that kids display in the art room was the true highlight of her teaching career. Pursuing her own art is what eventually led her away from the classroom. Kelsey now focuses on large paintings of wildlife and landscapes in bold color. Having the opportunity to continue to share the joy of art with Beanstalk’s creative kids brings it all full circle. Kelsey focuses on the control each artist has in his or her own work, how to correctly and creatively use materials, and how to use art as a source of expression in a calming space.
