Creator of everything in Artastic Nation
My name is Kathleen and I am Ms Artastic. I am a teacher in Canada and I strongly believe in allowing students the opportunity to be creative, explore and experiment, and make mistakes. I also have two cats who are named Russel and Audrey. As Ms Artastic, I design art resources, projects, and curriculum for teachers from kindergarten to grade twelve, as well as apparel for art teachers through Ms Artastic’s Apparel.
I began my journey out of high school in 2007 at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life (who does when you’re 17). There, I learned about Visual Art, and concentrated in ceramic and sculpture art. In 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor of Art, Major in Visual Arts. I then attended Simon Fraser University where I obtained my Bachelor of Education, Secondary Minor.
I am also a professional artist. I go by the name Kathleen McGiveron. I create low brow ceramic sculptures that are creepy and cute. I frequently show my art in British Columbia, Canada, in both commercial and public galleries.
