Hi! I’m so glad you found us. I am a teaching artist in Northern California. Sharing the the world of arts with all ages is exciting and inspiring. I am dedicated to making art fun and doable for everyone. I believe there is value in the process of art and that all can learn through it no matter the final product. I own Joyful Art Studio, an art studio that provides classes in painting, mixed media and much more! With a growing team of artists, we have a mission of sharing our individual creative gifts with others to bring the JOY of art to our community. I believe in the power of art to bring joy and inspiration to people's lives. Celebrating the profound impact that art can have on individuals of all ages and economic backgrounds, igniting their creativity and enriching their souls.
Below you can check out our growing team!
I have been creating and crafting since childhood. I love to learn new skills and explore every medium. Creating art in whatever form, keeps me from perfectionist tendencies, and reminds me that the process of learning, struggling and growing in my skills (and in life) is more important than the finished product. I truly believe everyone is an artist, but we all have different mediums we are drawn to. I love helping others discover their own creativity and find true enjoyment in their creations. In local schools and churches, I have worked with all ages, babies to seniors, and I enjoy them all!
I am a retired elementary school teacher who has always believed in the importance of bringing art into the classroom experience. Many of my lessons for children are STEAM related, combining art with science and math.
I am the education chair of the Vacaville Art League and Gallery and have taught children and adult classes there. Along with working with Cristie at Joyful Art Studio, I also work at the Discovery Hub bringing fun and engaging STEAM classes to children.
Hi, my name is Angela Horn. I have been a mixed media artist for over twenty years. I love to teach all types of classes but I specialize in the medium of watercolor. Art is such a beautiful way to express yourself, be seen, or inspire. Art is also grounding and healing. I support the idea of having joy in the process of creating. I love this community and look forward to sharing my experience and process with others.
I have loved art and creating since I was a child. As life has gotten busier and busier, nothing is more wonderful than getting to create with children. I’ve loved working with children from a very young age and there’s nothing I love to see more than a child’s creativity at work. I’m currently in school to be an Early Elementary School Teacher. For now, I get to spend all of my extra time teaching classes here at the Joyful Art Studio! There is something truly special about teaching art. I hope to see your child or you in a class soon!
