ARTIST | EDUCATOR
GROW MORE. LOVE MORE. FEEL MORE. HEAL MORE.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share my journey, purpose, and passion for healing, wholeness, and peace.
I believe that our most important creation is our own life. In order to paint a picture of reality that is profoundly beautiful, we must commit ourselves to the sacred work of growth and expansion.
To the light-workers, peace-makers and healers… Keep pointing to the light.
To the innovators, creatives and dreamers…Keep changing the world.
Here’s to a movement of grace, healing and transformation.
Here’s to a revolution of love and consciousness.
- CREATIVE CULTURE -
Meet Kara Elizabeth:
I have been teaching in the Greensboro community for 12 years.
I specialize in art education, art production, and program development.
I believe that creation is a form of meditation and a tool for transformation- making space between the noisy chatter of the mind and connecting us to the deeper and quieter parts of ourselves. This philosophy guides my work.
I offer a variety of art programs that relax the mind, nourish the soul, and restore the spirit.
“Kara taught my Girl Scout Brownie troop 2 art lessons for them to earn their painting badge. The girls were all completely engaged- maybe the only meetings this year where that was the case. They learned how to paint portraits. Kara balanced teaching them technique with letting their creativity shine through. Best Brownie meetings of the year. I feel so lucky to have someone with her skills available to our kids in Greensboro.”
“In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for every person you meet. Some are there to test you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the best in you. My daughter Hailey was in Kindergarten when she met Ms. Lewis, her art teacher, at Greensboro Academy. Not a day passed that Hailey did not come home talking about her art class. The amount of creativity, energy and determination that Ms. Lewis was able to pound into that little being was unbelievable. Although our time with Ms. Lewis teaching Hailey at GA was short, the bond she made with Hailey will last an eternity. When Hailey decided to set her sights on attending Weaver Academy for Visual Arts, we knew the one person that would motivate, teach and inspire Hailey was Ms. Lewis. Luckily, Ms. Lewis was available to see Hailey for private lessons and help her prepare a beautiful portfolio to present at her audition. We are excited to announce that Hailey was accepted to attend Weaver Academy for Visual Arts. We could not have done this without the instruction and inspiration from Ms. Lewis. Whether you are looking to audition at an Arts school, attend a summer camp or just a fun art class, you will not be disappointed with what you receive from Ms. Lewis. She is a remarkable artist and such an inspiration to everyone that she comes in contact with. She will bring out the best in you!!!!”
“You have far exceeded any of my expectations and you will always be remembered as an incredible teacher and human being by both of my girls. I am hopeful that you will be around for many more years. You have made a huge impact on my daughter over the last few years. She is always talking about art class and what they learned, but especially about you, the person. She really looks up to you. I started this letter to congratulate you on a job well done, but I’m ending it with a deep appreciation for people in our lives who make a difference simply by being themselves, day in and day out. Thank you for being an angel who has touched the hearts of my daughters and myself.”
“Ms. Lewis has the ability to engage all students regardless of their artistic talent or ability. Each child feels a creative desire to try their best in her class. The art projects that are introduced are so unique and different and the children are genuinely excited to produce their own work.”
“We all need more of this: what Kara offers is a safe space and a deep learning that has truly helped me grow as a person, intellectually, emotionally, consciously. The women in the class with me, are now lifelong friends and we all have grown and healed an laughed and cried and created. I am so thankful to have been a part of this group, and I would highly recommend it.”
“We were pleased when we heard you were to be the speaker [at the NJHS ceremony]. Your message of honor, integrity, and compassion brought a flood of tears to my eyes. It is a message our children and grandchildren need to hear. It is a message I need to hear. It is the right message and you delivered it with class.”
“Kara is a gifted teacher and an amazing person. She taught my daughter middle school art for 2 years. She is the reason my daughter fell in love w art and is currently graduating from college soon with a degree in Art with teaching licensure. She has a lovely spirit as well as great talent and teaching ability.”
“Kara was amazing with my daughter. She wanted to transform her room into a “secret garden”- basically paint a mural on the walls. I was obviously anxious, so I had the good sense to hire Kara to “help” her. Kara listened to all of my 8 year olds ideas and taught her how to draw every flower in the massive mural. Anything that seemed a little unusual, she made sure to run by me first to make sure it was ok. She bought all the paints and made it a painless experience. Her patience was incredible, as this was very detailed work and took many sessions, My daughter never got bored with it because Kara has an amazing teaching style. My daughter getting to learn one on one from Kara is a priceless experience that will be hard to top. It will no doubt be a defining part of her childhood. Her room is gorgeous- Kara made sure to perfect the (inevitable) smudges and the result is a masterpiece. Sam is so proud that she painted the room herself. Everyday when I go in it, I am stunned again by its beauty and in awe that my daughter can now paint like that. Her confidence as an artist soared after this experience. Please email me at Elizabeth.firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to see a photo. And hire Kara – it will be a choice you will never regret.”
