Instructor Kieren Dutcher
A third generation Oakland native, I earned a BFA in graphic design at CCAC, later an MA in Art Education. I've taught art to kids of all ages for many years, now I'm in my studio, working with adult artists with disabilities at NIAD(niadart.org), and teaching workshops. My first picture book, 'Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes: Stories to Share and Sing' (Tuttle Publishing) debuted in 2010 and was reissued in 2018. I am now working on a series of picture book biographies on women artists. I sell my paintings, prints, greeting cards, scarves and tea towels in my Etsy shop, and at craft/art sales in the Bay Area. My work is in private collections in the US and abroad, and two hospitals: Sutter (Van Ness campus, Stanford Pediatric floor, SF) and Kaiser(Pediatric Behavioral Health, Petaluma, CA).
