Studies show that art positively impacts our mental health. Taking time to create and be okay with getting messy helps our minds to relax.

After giving time for our minds to unwind and create, we are able to focus better on things outside of art class like school. ​

Hey, I'm Mckaylie! I work as a part time art teacher here at Selva Art Studio when I'm home from Biola University in LA. I have been enjoying art since I was in middle school, which has later lead me to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in design. I have worked with kids since my early years in high school and I thoroughly love helping kids explore their creativity in art. My chosen medium is acrylic paint. Aside from painting, my favorite hobbies are spending time outside and exploring nature!
