Katie French

I am an artist and stay-at-home mama of two beautiful girls. Before having kids, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art and a Master’s degree in Education at the University of Maryland, College Park and became an art teacher. During my career I taught in two Maryland public high schools that were also English Language Learner centers.

Last year (2020) really made me reflect on what I wanted out of life and forced me to “take the plunge” on some of my goals and dreams. Since being home and busy with babies, I realized how much I missed teaching, being creative, and making art. Fundamentally, it is fulfilling to my being. Ultimately, I made more art in 2020 than I had in the previous 3 years combined and towards the end of the year, I finally realized that this is what I need to do. I am excited to join Creative York to get back into teaching and bringing art to the community.

All supplies are included.
