Michka Art Play evolved from the experience of local artist, Kate Carson, who wanted to share her extensive love of drawing and painting to others locally and around the world. Art Play provides workshops to all ages and abilities. For a current list of programs, please visit the workshops page.

Why should we remain creative throughout our lives?

Because creativity truly enhances your life in so many magical and sparkly ways! I guarantee you will become more joyful, confident, relaxed, and positive in every aspect of your life.

Drawing, painting and creating brings PURE JOY to my life.

I was a late bloomer to the art world. I first put paint to canvas in Michelle Miller’s Painting class when I was in my early 40’s. I was hooked and from that day forward my art journey has been beyond my wildest dreams…from teaching art in Victoria, Burma, Bali,Italy and Nicaragua, to publishing two art books,teaching art to all ages(love love teaching),to being an exhibiting international artist. I just can’t get enough of Art! Art is my Life!

The goal for me is to INSPIRE people of all ages to play and create, so let’s CREATE together!

“It’s not just about creativity, its about the person you’re becoming while you’re creating.”
