Ms. Shaw

I have been teaching for more than twenty years and still love it more every year. I love all of the arts but painting is my first love. I am new to STMA this year, but it already feels like home. I also work part-time as a local mural artist and am currently pursuing my Masters in Education at Bethel University. I live in Osseo with my husband, two daughters and our rescue puppy, named Juna.

In class our focus will be on the process of discovery and exploration rather than a polished finished product. Our time together will be spent working in a collaborative atmosphere of artists instead of a teacher/student perspective. I will encourage mistakes, experimentation and analytic thinking – because art should be FUN!
