The one on the left is of a red dragon against light grey stonework. The one on the right is a pale pink flower in a clear vase against a bright yellow background.

Kim enjoys challenging children to use their imaginations and develop their own creativity during her classes here at the Creative Workshop.

Kim Kurtz earned an MS in education from Nazareth College and a BS from SUNY Brockport in art and dance. She been teaching art in public school since 1999 and has taught all ages from pre-K to grade 12. She currently teaches in the Greece School District.

Kim has taught several clay and drawing and painting classes for ages 4 to 15, consistently weaving in inspiration from the artwork in the museum and around the world. Kim has extensive experience working with young children in expressive arts environments.

Her own artwork is above on the right. She is inspired by the words of Pablo Picasso: “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
