Hello! I am Kate Yanish and I am thrilled to be joining the AMS Desert Sky team as the K-8 art teacher. Creating and imagining is my passion and I cannot wait to share that with your children. I am humbled to be a part of AMS's passionate and talented team, and grateful that AMS values the place of arts and culture in the curriculum. I look forward to providing for my students the sort of art program I always wanted, but did not have access to at the elementary and middle school levels.


My job this year is to teach theory and technique, but more importantly my job is to get your child excited about creating, challenging their mind to see the world in new and unexpected ways. Most importantly, we will have FUN!


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions, concerns, or just friendly introductions! I cannot wait to meet you!
