Dawn Vela


Dawn Vela was born and raised just outside of the culture rich city of New Orleans, Louisiana.  With over 15 years of experience working with children, Dawn has a deep passion for teaching others and helping them gain confidence as they discover their own artistic abilities. Her classes teach students how to explore and express their creativity through various mediums, such as acrylic, watercolor, ink and pencil.


Dawn also teaches painting through step-by-step instruction for date night, mommy and me, girls night out, bachelorette parties and birthday parties for all ages at Studio 88!


When not teaching, Dawn enjoys camping and spending time with her family and 3 dogs.
