About Kelly Arnold
Kelly painting Salzburg Castle, Maribelle Garden AustriaArt can say so much! I’ve had the pleasure of helping others speak their own language for 28 years, working as a full time artist and art instructor. Many students have become professionals and many have won awards.

Working with students from 4 to 98 years old has been one of my greatest achievements. These students work in a range of mediums from drawing, painting, sculpture, computer graphics to creating their own websites. I also teach students online. My personal work continues to grow and develop with the need to lead the way for others. 

Thank you to James and Roberta Fleming, commercial artists, who I began working for at age 14. They made all the difference in my life. I’m grateful we continue enjoying each others accomplishments. I also attended art classes at The University of Maine at Orono. The Fleming’s help lead me into all forms of art including a decade of printing business experience. During that time I worked in, and at one point ran, a graphics department of 7 for a multi-million dollar printing company. Choosing to purse my art and instructing solely was 28 years ago.

There have been so many wonderful milestones. I’ve had the pleasure of painting well over 200 portrait commissions and sold many paintings. Participated in a wide range of shows, events and festivals. I’ve hosted many with Tuckahoe Mansion being the biggest so far. I've started The Arts Enrichment Club for teens and adults. Students and friends in my life are amazing and continue to inspire me, as I do for them. Hope you can join us!

Student Recommendations:

     “Kelly is a wonderfully talented artist and art teacher. She is able to instruct all ages, abilities, and mediums. She has an arsenal of tools and techniques to share with her students. She continues to work and grow as an artist herself, therefore, so do her students. Lucky us!” - Lori Bradfield, Student, Art Travel Buddy, Friend

     “Kelly gives each of her students personal attention and she is able to explain methods, techniques and ideas three or four different ways until she sees the light bulb go off in your head!”  - Larry Lavargna www.LarryLavargna.com or www.OldFLArt.com

     "Kelly has a unique gift with her combination of artistic talent, technical skills and experience to connect with people of all ages. She brings out in them their own unique abilities, allowing them to be challenged, yet not overwhelmed, no matter the subject, medium or their own skill level. She is the ultimate teacher." - Susan Roberts www.TurtleLady.com


     "One of the many wonderful things about Kelly, is that she is “one stop shopping” for an art instructor.  I found that many instructors teach only one medium, but not Kelly.  My daughters have learned everything from drawing, painting, photoshop to even doll making over the years.  If there is an art form you want to learn and experience, chances are, Kelly can teach it to you." - Michelle Pray (mother of Mia and Tessa Pray)
