About Full Circle Art Studio
In the Beginning
For many years, I have worked as an art teacher, a graphic designer and a practicing fine artist. Originally founded in 1990 under the name Lewis Graphics, I offered graphic design and publishing services to businesses across the Colorado Front Range. The name change in 2014 marked a new chapter in my evolution as an artist.
Student Becomes Teacher
In 2010, I enrolled in the graduate art education program at the University of Northern Colorado. While I worked on my masters degree, I served as a graduate assistant to three professors and supervised student teachers. After I completed my MA in 2013, I changed the name of my business to Full Circle Art Studio to reflect my focus on teaching and the fine arts.
In this latest chapter in my life, I am practicing my true calling as an art teacher. I offer a variety of enriching art classes to adult and teenage students, while continuing to evolve as a practicing fine artist myself. Won't you join me?
About Claudia Lewis, M.A.
I believe that art reveals our strengths and forgives our weaknesses. It is a manifestation of our personal story, spirit, values and heart. Art for art’s sake can help you discover parts of yourself you’ve never met before.
Teacher and Artist
In my classroom, I start by working with my students to establish a high level of comfort with the materials and techniques of the practices I teach. Then, I strive to help each student find a personal connection to their creations. My goal is to help all my students find their creative voices, whatever form it takes. The classes and open studio sessions I offer here at Full Circle Art Studio are meant to provide a safe and creative atmosphere where students can explore and flourish.
The Joy of Creation!
Nothing thrills me more than to see a student’s eyes light up when they have made something beautiful they never thought possible. I hope you will come to my studio and discover your artist within. Thanks for visiting my website!
What a great way to de-stress - to be able to create, play like a kid and create something really fun to wear - all at the same time.
Claudia guided us through several different kinds of dyeing and resist techniques and made the whole process easy.
“I NEED TO PLAY!!! And in this class that's exactly what I can do - for me, there's little better than playing with color and materials to soothe the jangled nerves. Better than wine!!! The instruction Claudia provides adds to the comfort level in playing.”
