Christine Burton

Fine Arts Instructor

My passions for creating art and facilitating childrens' learning led me into careers both in the fields of Art and Education. My BFA degree in Commercial Art and Studio Art lead me initially into art direction positions for many years. Later, I transitioned into owning my own fine art business, and also teaching art classes for adults and children. Clients included Chesterfield Arts, The Kaleidoscope Program (created for special needs adults and teens ), St. Louis Community College College For Kids Program, The Foundry Art Centre, and my own private art classes and art parties for all age groups. Additionally, I was employed until retirement in 2020 as both a Para-Educator and Teacher Assistant in the Rockwood and Webster Groves School Districts. As I continue to lead art classes for students, my focus is on providing creative and unique ways for self-expression and self-esteem building, and "out-of-the-box" ideas that expand students' awareness and appreciation for their unique gifts.

I'm constantly creating! Currently I design and create a variety of mixed-media art and abstract
paintings, which may be viewed on my website: chrisburtonart.com
