About Me
Sculpting
Sculpting my Bust, Digital Photograph


Art is my passion and has been since pre-school when we learned how to mix the color pink. My inspiration to teach came from my own high school art teacher, Mrs. Cesare who cared deeply about the well being and success of all of her students. I am open minded and relish in the opportunity to help students grow as artists and young adults. I will work very hard to achieve that success for every student that I encounter.
My name is Karryssa Schmidt. I currently live in Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania and I graduated from Pen Argyl High School in 2007. I will be graduating from Moravian College in May of 2011 with a bachelors degree in art education. I have been working at Daisy Family Restaurant in Wind Gap, PA since 2003. I have an older sister who is a nurse at St. Lukes Hospital and also a younger brother in high school.
