Our Story

Welcome to Whitepine Studios, where a passion for teaching and a love for the visual arts come together to create a vibrant community of creativity. Founded by Kaili, an artist and educator with a BFA from the University of Michigan’s School of Art and Design, Whitepine Studios is more than just a space—it’s a haven for self-expression.

Kaili’s journey began with a deep-seated love for teaching, which she seamlessly combined with her artistic fervor to establish Whitepine Studios. Throughout her college years, she not only pursued her own artistic education but also shared her knowledge and passion by teaching others. Today, Kaili remains committed to fostering creativity and sharing the joy of art with students of all ages.

At the heart of Whitepine Studios is a dedication to the fundamentals of art and design, presented in an environment that is both enjoyable and supportive. For the youngest artists, our focus is on exploration, encouraging them to engage with art materials and nurture their originality. As we move into classes for teens and adults, Whitepine Studios becomes a space for self-discovery, Inspiring the Artist Inside.

Our diverse range of classes and workshops caters to all ages and abilities, reflecting our belief that art is not confined to any particular demographic. We firmly believe that art has the power to bring valuable and meaningful experiences to individuals of all ages. Join us at Whitepine Studios, where creativity knows no bounds, and the artist in you is waiting to flourish.
