Kelley Quinn

Biography: 

Kelley Quinn received her masters degree in Contemporary Art History and Criticism from Webster University in 1997 and has been creating art in schools and communities ever since. With a focus on mosaics, mandalas, labyrinths, and murals, Quinn facilitates a spiritual hands-on approach for people not normally involved in the arts, helping them recognize and incorporate art in their everyday lives. Her experience as an art curriculum specialist and trainer is exemplified in her curriculum-rich projects that make strong connections in other academic areas. Quinn has worked with children and students ranging from early childhood to college level. She has experience working with students with learning and behavior disabilities as well as designing projects for diverse members of the community all with great success.

Artistic Statement: 

For the past seven years, I have designed large-scale art projects with a focus on labyrinths, mandalas, mosaics, and murals. I focus on getting students or diverse members of the community to work together to create a specific work for a specific location. Some pieces are permanent, others are temporary, but everyone, including myself, comes away with a new sense of what art is and what it can do for a community.
