Kimberly Fredricks, Printmaking Instructor
Kim Fredricks loves to get inky! She studied art at Northern Illinois University and stayed an extra year after discovering the wonders of printmaking. Under the direction of professors, Michael Barnes and Ashely Nason, Kim developed a passion for all types of printmaking. Through Water Street Studios, Kim eagerly shares her passion for print with her students. Kim’s story at Water Street Studios began as an internship, grew into teaching printmaking classes and developing Water Street Studios’ PrintLab Maker-Space.
Karine Bauch became Director of Education at Water Street Studios in June 2016 and brings 15 years of art education experience with her. She especially enjoys teaching young people to draw and render realistically while still encouraging them to express their own creative style. She earned an AAS in illustration at Fashion Institute of Technology, and has worked as both an illustrator and art teacher. Her award winning art curriculum, The Phonics of Drawing, has been used by art teachers and home educators for the last ten years. Her personal gallery can be seen here. She has recently discovered the incredible world of paper marbling and is eager to share it with her students.
