Participants are welcome to bring in a leaf to sketch.

About the Teaching Artist 

Kathleen Moore is from the wide-open plains of the Texas Panhandle. She grew up on the edge of the beautiful Palo Duro, a canyon cutting through layers of orange, gold, and violet soil under an immense sky. In this rugged place of awe-inspiring sunrises, terrifyingly beautiful thunderstorms, and an ever-present wind, Moore’s sense of the sublime developed. She works in a variety of mediums to capture moments of awe, from vast, stormy skyscapes to the intimate amazement of a single flower. 

Moore received her bachelor’s degree in art from West Texas A&M University then continued her study of painting at Bruchion School in Los Angeles, CA and Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, WA. Her career in the arts has spanned graphic design, architecture, and arts administration as well as painting and teaching. 

Kathleen teaches classes and workshops in drawing and painting in the Seattle area as well as online. Kathleen enjoys working with students. She creates an upbeat, friendly environment for learning that focuses on the individual.
