Phoenix Simone Walter
Children and Teen Online Art Teacher
Phoenix has loved art of all kinds since she could hold a crayon. From art classes to art camps to interning with a reputable artist in Brooklyn, she was always surrounded and excited by art while growing up. Known as a warm, upbeat and inspiring online art educator, Phoenix believes that all people are creative in their own unique way. She feels that in art, there is no wrong answer. Phoenix encourages all of her students to express themselves authentically, fully and freely.
Phoenix helps her students to solve creative challenges through virtual art classes. She encourages students to step outside the box and outside their comfort zones in order to learn, grow and expand personally and creatively. Phoenix believes in her students even when they don’t (yet!) believe in themselves, and she provides the tools and support to create meaningful art to feel proud of. Phoenix’s engaging online art classes for kids and teens create community, connection and positivity.
After spending her entire life in New York, Phoenix moved to Washington, DC after graduating from art school. In DC, Phoenix focuses her creative gifts through her work as a graphic designer. Additionally, she is a specialist in experiential design for large scale events, conference branding and corporate space design. She is also a photographer, and her artistic eye captures life’s most impactful moments through the camera lens, including engagements, maternity, baby, professional portraits, and family photos.
Phoenix earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in New Media Design from Rochester Institute of Technology, where she learned and explored a wide variety of art and design, from drawing and painting to typography and website design. Phoenix has been an art educator in various children’s programs and art centers on the east coast.
