Elaine Johnson- Fine Arts Teacher
Elaine is an Arizona native and graduate from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Art and Master of Education in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. Elaine currently is an elementary art teacher in Chandler and ceramic sculptural artist. She enjoys teaching drawing, painting, embroidery, fibers, ceramics, and sculpture. In Elaine’s spare time she focuses on elegant three-dimensional evening gown sculptures by manipulating clay into many forms. When sculpting, she hand builds all gowns into life like fabric from porcelain. Her unique sculptures are distinctive with every twist, turn and fold. Each handcrafted sculpture is one of a kind. She includes china paint and gold luster to finish the last touch. While attending Arizona State University, Elaine was mentored by well-known ceramic china paint artist Arizona State University professor Kurt Weiser. He taught her his china painting techniques, glazing and clay body recipes. Elaine is excited to share her passion of art at Music Makers Workshop!
