Visual Arts Instructor, High School
Lindsey Schmitt is a visual artist and educator that makes paintings, drawings, and textiles. She believes that making art fosters creativity, courage, and problem-solving abilities. As an art teacher, her goal is to make the class a safe space where students explore art and expand their curiosity of the world. She loves sharing information with students so that they are able to develop and advance their artistic skills to express their own individual ideas.

Lindsey has taught as a visual arts adjunct professor at the collegiate level, as an elementary art teacher in the public school setting, and at various non-profit organizations such as the Authentic Children’s Art Association.
