Christine is an artist, art teacher, and certified grief educator who enjoys music, traveling, spending time with her family, and a really good street taco.
As a former k-12 art teacher she has experience teaching adult and children’s art classes in a variety of mediums including ceramics, collage, drawing, painting, printing, and sculpture. Her primary focus is on meeting students where they are in their own artistic process encouraging exploring a creative outlet over the pressure of a “perfect” finished product. She recently left her teaching career after the sudden loss of her son. With the need to stay “tethered” to her life, and find purpose through the pain she became a certified grief educator and a grief movement instructor. As a legacy for her son, she co-founded the company Honoring X; art and wellness classes for grief groups who are honoring their own loved ones, and themselves through their personal grief journeys.
Christine’s credentials include: a BFA in Fine Art from A.S.U., MEd in K-12 art education from Regis University, Colorado Art Educators Association’s charter/private school Teacher of the Year, certified Grief Educator through David Kessler, certified Grief Movement instructor.
Please note: I am not an art therapist and MAC experiences are not Honoring X grief courses.
