Our Story

We are three art teachers with over 60 years combined experience in teaching a wide variety of art mediums. Our common desire is to bring art experiences to children in rural areas who have limited exposure to the visual arts and art-making.

"We believe art is essential to all children and are excited to offer art experiences in locations where children have limited access to the visual arts."

Molly Moore

"I've always been intrigued with the interaction between humans and the environment, the ways humans try to control and manipulate the environment (and the other species that live in our environs) and how the environment often strikes back altering the landscapes and the humanscapes that have been created."

This intrigue and desire to understand and express her thoughts and ideas is what has led Molly down the path of studying both art and anthropology/archeology professionally. Gaining her Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1986 and her Masters of Arts degree in Anthropology/Archeology in 1990 from the University of Nevada, Reno, Molly was set on a path that eventually exposed her to the joys and wonders of teaching. After receiving her Teaching Certification from Sierra Nevada College in 1999, Molly has devoted nearly 20 years of her life to the practice of teaching others how to express themselves with the various tricks and tools of an artist.

"I've found that my favorite aspect of teaching is to improvise. I love to work with the moment and movement of the student[s], the tools that are at hand, and the inspirations that have been instigated by what is currently happening in the world or environment around us."

“Take chances, make mistakes, get messy”! – Ms. Frizzle, Magic School Bus

Lauren believes that children are born artists and that they need to be given the chance to create. In today’s society children are not regularly exposed to music, visual-arts and the performing arts. Lauren’s goal is to enhance a child’s natural desire to create by providing various artistic opportunities.

“I’ve been doing this for almost 30 years in Northern, Central and Southern Nevada. A great love and appreciation for rural communities keeps me motivated to share my passion for all things creative!”

Annie M. Clark

"Art is our first language! I fell in love with that form of expression when I was a very little girl."

That was the beginning of her passion to help children of all ages discover their artist within. Born and raised in Michigan, Annie received her teaching degree in Art and French then headed west where she taught art for 30 years in the great state of Nevada. She has her MFA (Masters of Fine Art) and is a National Board Certified Teacher of Art. She is a forever student of life, art, science and nature. Annie’s vast experience makes her a master teacher of ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, and graphic design. Her love is to work on collaborations and has led many groups in a variety of projects including mosaic murals, installations, large ceramic and mixed-media sculptures, painted murals, and even building a building on school campus. Recently, Annie’s interest in enriching children’s lives with art brought her to Haiti twice. The first time her group helped build a school. The second time she went to teach art, practice art therapy, and organize a group mural project. 

"I'm very excited to work with children individually and on group projects, especially where they have limited exposure to the fun of making art!"
