Local artist, of both the fine and commercial worlds and educator, Yvette Contois was the guest for the June 8th live broadcast of UCSC’s KZSC‘s Artists on Art.

She works as an art teacher, graphic designer, technical illustrator, and painter.

Yvette has been giving art lessons to adults & children since 1990. For the last year, she has been teaching at the studio space, the Art Factory, in Aptos.  Currently,   there are many summer classes for kids happening from ceramics to art/science and

Her artwork has been featured in juried exhibits since the 1980s, and her commercial art has won national & local recognition.  She received her Bachelors in Fine Art and K-12 Art Teaching Certification from Rosemont College, PA, & an Associate Degree in Visual Communications & Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

Her guiding passion is bringing art into the lives of her students and that all ages can develop the ability to draw and paint what they see while enriching their visual perception of the world.

Yvette recognizes the value in children creating art as “historical documents”; representing their thoughts, processes, developmental stages and creativity. Process and positive, supportive art experiences always come before product.
