About the Teacher

My name is Kathryn Krech and this is my sixteenth year teaching art in 
New Prague. I have an amazing family including my husband Brandon
and a 71/2 year old son Kassen and a 4 year old son named Torrin. I
have a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia
University and a bachelor’s degree in K-12 Visual Arts Education
from Minnesota State University. My personal artistic passions revolve
around ceramic sculpture, many forms of painting, mosaics, drawing
and using creative problem solving skills. I love the arts and helping
students find their inner artist and stretching their creative problem
solving abilities. I also feel blessed to work in a community with such
wonderful students, families, and staff.

Mission for The Class 

My artistic goals for Raven Stream students are to achieve success and 
appreciate the visual arts while applying the creative process to become 
more inventive problem solvers.  I am driven to involve students in all 
parts of art education including art history, criticism, production and 
aesthetics. I also believe it is important for all students and educators a 
like to be positive and productive team players who show enthusiasm for the 
learning process.
