Meet the Instructor: Danielle Folkerts
Welcome! I’m Danielle Folkerts. As an artist, art educator and creative mentor. I strive to create engaging, educational, and simply enjoyable artistic experiences. I aim to inspire and instill creative confidence through innovative opportunities that allow you to explore and experiment with art. You don’t have to be an artist or have previous experience to create. I am happy to provide you with the support you need at your own level. When attending my classes, I don’t want you to simply go home with a new piece of art, I want you to go home buzzing with inspiration and a sense of creative potential and community. All you need to do is show up with enthusiasm and an open mind, and the rest in taken care of. Through creating a comfortable and upbeat learning environment, supporting local businesses, and sharing my own skills and experience I hope to provide you with a unique and unforgettable experience!
I have organized and created workshops for schools, community centres, small businesses, wellness centres, military groups, home parties, fundraisers and more! I work with all ages and I am happy to adapt each workshop for the appropriate audience and experience level. With my wide range of experience I am able to organize and tailor workshops that fit your specific needs and interests. I work with a variety of mediums including: acrylic, watercolour, collage, printmaking, fibre art, and kid's crafts. I work hard to be a continued creative resource for all of my students and community. Currently, you can find me running my own workshops all around Kingston, Ontario and area. See below for all upcoming events, previous classes, and great "workshops in action" shots!
Let's collaborate! I love bringing communities together through creativity. I am open to working with different mediums, venues, groups and businesses! Are you interested in taking a workshop, arranging a private group party, or in working with me? Send me an email! I am happy to answer your questions, or give you a quote. For all event, workshop, and project inquires please expect to budget for materials and a Professional Artist Fee. Please note, I am a one-woman-show, my availability is limited. Thank you for your ongoing support. Let's make some magic! – Danielle Folkerts
