Class Information and Procedures 

Meet your instructor, Judith Kosinski!
Judith has been creating ever since she can remember and has been teaching all she knows about art and creativity for more than 20 years! She is passionate about all aspects of artmaking and truly loves to help other artists create and grow their skills.

Judy is an experienced and engaging educator; skilled with creative curriculum development, teaching all media in fine art, providing youth and professional mentoring. She most recently worked as an educator for Alden Central Schools for 23 years, teaching art and life skills to grades 9-12, art classes to inmates in a correctional facility, coordinated adult education programs, and organized community-wide art events.

Her passion for painting and drawing is infused in her teaching: “Helping artists find and strengthen their own artistic voice is such an important and rewarding practice” commented Judy, “And teaching with the Botanical Gardens is a wonderful partnership -- I am eager to work with students in this incredibly rich environment filled with natural inspiration!” Judy works in lots of different media herself, with a particular love for watercolor, oil and mixed media.
