At Kaleidoscope, we pride ourselves on exposing kids and adults to real working artists, craftspeople and makers. We introduce and educate kids to all things creative from painting to photography to film-making to comic book design/creation. We bring in highly trained professional artists and teachers to teach and facilitate. We are a real working studio that functions as an artist/maker studio for all who enter it. Oh and don't be surprised if there is an impromptu dancing/singing party breaking out from time to time with this crew! Here is the current creative team:
Top Left: Kimberly Jenkins - studio owner, artist, educator, informationaholic, serial problem-solver, Decatur mama of 3 wild boys, music lover, dancer, performer, lover of being real and crazy!
Middle right: Greta High-Reynolds - an introverted people-person who loves using a camera as a clever disguise for her people-watching; loves cult classic movies and TV shows, YA books, glam rock, power pop, nice people, traveling, and new experiences. Her kids are 10 and 15 and if you ask me, she thinks they are two of the coolest humans on the planet! Owner of From the Hip Photography.
Right: Nick Madden - guest artist/teacher, sculpture creator, funky filmmaker, awesome art teacher and collaborator. Check out his work here!
Andrea Davis - incredible assistant, funky, fun and the kids think she is simply amazing. She is an aspiring teacher working on her education degree while keeping the wheels on the studio bus.
