Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kari Pardington
I was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM, but I've spent most of my adult life in Texas and Colorado. My two children are grown and on their own...for the most part. I've been teaching art in several avenues: art camps, girl scouts, as enrichment activities, and in the classroom for 12 years. I can't imagine doing anything else as a career! I love sharing my knowledge of fine arts with children of all ages and they in turn inspire me every day!!
Education/Licenses: I received my bachelor's degree in education from West Texas A&M. I am a licensed K-12 art teacher in Colorado as well as Texas.
