Kate Lanxner

Mediums: Teen Painting & Drawing, Young Artists.

From the age of six, Kate Lanxner knew she was going to be an artist. Now an art teacher for children, teens and adults, a printmaker, and an illustrator (books, magazines, newspapers), Kate has also completed calligraphy projects for clients, outdoor signs, and has co-produced a children’s neighborhood newspaper with her daughter. Kate received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in Art Education and Printmaking, and went on to study color etching at the international studio, Atelier 17 in Paris, France (now called Atelier Contrepoint). As well as teaching in public and private schools and camps, and working with children with special needs, she was on the staff of the Community Education Program of the H.F. Johnson Museum of Art of Cornell University. More recently, before moving to the D.C. metropolitan area, she organized and taught her own art classes and camps.

“The reason I enjoy teaching children and teens so much can be summed up in the phrase, “expect the unexpected.” They are more in tune with their imaginations than most adults. I continue to be inspired by their adventurous spirits and their inventiveness, in creative painting, drawing, and printmaking.”
