Chrissy Richards

Art Teacher

Hello, my name is Chrissy Richards.  I am thrilled to be sharing my passion for art with your children.  Creative problem solving is crucial for all disciplines of school and life.  My goal is to familiarize children with great works of art, help them make connections between historical and social contexts and the art that grew out of them, practice motor skills and visual expression, learn to enjoy and appreciate a variety of art viewing and creating, and spark a joy for creativity in all aspects of life.

I received my BA in Visual Arts from BYU.  I have experience in photography, print-making, drawing and painting, color theory, figure drawing, composition, typography, and design.  My professional career as a graphic designer has focused on logo design, along with some app, website, print, and motion design.

My husband and three school age children are the center of my life.  In my free time I love backpacking, biking, camping, interior design and remodeling, sewing, furniture refinishing, thrifting, gardening and raising chickens.
