Lead Studio Coordinator and Art Instructor
Kristy Castellano is an artist originating from Long Island, NY. She earned her BFA in Studio Art from the College of Saint Rose, along with a minor in Art History. Though her primary concentration was in printmaking, Kristy also has experience in painting and photography–all mediums which have technical elements found in her layered work. Her prints have been shown in New York City and throughout the Albany region.
Kristy finds that her artistic background is helpful to her position as studio coordinator and art instructor. Having worked with many of the materials used in our acrylic painting, oil painting, and drawing classes, she is eager to share useful tips and provide students with any answer from an artist’s perspective. Through teaching, Kristy encourages students to overcome their hesitations, with positive feedback and tips, and is always happy to demonstrate techniques. Whether it’s answering questions, organizing events, or maintaining the studio, Kristy can be found in the office and popping into classrooms. The most fulfilling part of being a coordinator and instructor at The Art Studio NY is helping to build the sense of community found here.
