Kim Shaw

Kim Shaw (she/her) is an educator, illustrator, and working art maker with an emphasis in painting and the practice of expressive art therapy. Kim is an adjunct professor at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, a teaching artist with Education for the Arts/KRESA in Aesthetic Education, and facilitates independent programs in Kalamazoo. In the Summer months Kim collaborates with her partner, Dell Darnell of The Dapper Hammer, to bring art and woodworking camp opportunities to students ages 8 - 18.

“My main objective in art education is to create a safe and creative environment for individuals to try new things, express themselves, and build their knowledge of skills to improve and foster a positive relationship as a lifelong learner. The focus of my work is to grow individual and community enrichment through creative process, collaboration, active art-making, and human experience. In all of my artistic endeavors I strive to stay connected to current world art makers, new ideas, and artistic partnerships. Social justice, equity, and restorative justice are a priority in my personal education and the programming I cultivate in the community.”
