Amberly 

Owner / Youth & Adult Instructor/ Neuro Art Instructor

Hello!

My name is Amberly and I am the owner of Studio 23 Atlanta. I received my B.F.A in Painting from SCAD and love to create work in different media. I opened Studio 23 with the mission to create a studio for students of all ages, abilities, and levels to learn and create. I teach all age-ranges and work with students on the autism spectrum and other neurological disorders.

Sierra

Youth and Adult Instructor

Hi!

My name is Sierra, and I am currently pursuing a B.F.A in Drawing and Painting at Kennesaw State University. Over the course of my education I've discovered a love for studying art, which led me to minoring in Art History. During these art history courses, I have found a desire to teach and share an appreciation of art with others. From an early age, art was the center of my attention, and I always dreamed of a career involving it. Pursuing this passion has led me to Studio 23, where I plan and create art projects for people of all ages to enjoy and appreciate! Being at the art studio has provided me a goal, which is to teach others to love art and have FUN while doing it.

Kieran

Animation Instructor

When I was very young, I was terrified of Stop-Motion animation - something about it rubbed me the wrong way. Some twenty years later, and I work with it in some form nearly every single day! I graduated SCAD with a BFA in Animation in 2018, and have done animation work for MikeRoweWorks and the Center for Puppetry Arts, and had work exhibited at Atlanta's very own Plaza Theater and the fabulous Fox Theater! I coordinate and host animation workshops, focusing primarily on Stop-Motion fabrication and animation, as well as exploring storyboarding and character design. I love getting the chance to give young and enthusiastic artists an opportunity to explore the fascinating world of animation and bring their amazing stories and characters to life, giving them a chance to share their unique voice and ideas with the world.

Stephanie

Neurodevelopmental Art Instructor

Hello! I am so excited to start this journey at Studio 23 where we can individualize art classes to meet the needs and goals of each student. I am currently a Special Education Teacher at Teasley Elementary in a K-2nd classroom for students with autism. My heart and passion have always been in Special Education from a young age. I have experience teaching a variety of classrooms in NC and GA. I have also lead summer camp programs with the Autism Society of NC. My goal with our unique art program is to integrate social skills, communication, fine motor, and sensory into each project. By targeting each student’s individual needs and goals, we can adapt and teach new skills in a fun, innovative way!
