Gallery Groupies

Come visit with the artists featured in our gallery and get inspired to create your own work!

Did you know Artistree has a gallery right next to our studio? Let’s meet some of the talented working artists who display and sell their work in the Artistree Gallery. Painters, sculptors, printmakers, potters, jewelers, collage artists, bookmakers, and more are happy to talk about how they create their artwork and offer a few pointers to young artists. Each week we will connect with an experienced local artist to hear about their artwork and ask a few questions. After each gallery visit we will head over to the studio and experiment with the same types of materials to create our own original artwork!

Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
