Who is the art teacher?


Hi!  I'm Kara van Wyk. I studied visual art at St. Olaf College, where I earned my BA and a license to teach art K-12. I've worked as a professional artist for many years.  I began teaching in Minneapolis in 2009.  My husband continues to run our glass art business, potekglass, for which I do occassional consulting. We design custom lighting and tiles, develop artist-in-residence programs, and teach glassworking at our studio. We have just recently purchased and renovated a building in NE for our new studio!  My husband, 2 children and I live about a mile away from Webster. I love working in my own neighborhood!
