Tessa Weyhe

“I have been a teaching artist both in and out of educational settings for 10 years. Although I dabble in many different mediums, my very favorites are acrylic painting and darkroom photography. The best part about art, though, is that it is a catalyst for releasing hard emotions and a process for feeling good ones. We are so lucky we get to live in this beautiful world in which there is always something more to explore and appreciate, and the Artablity program is an excellent resource to that end!”
