Gayle Moore

Paint & Drawing Instructor

Born & raised in Jackson MN; I call myself The Art Gypsy.  I enjoy all types of art... painting, sculpting, beads, wire; I try it all!! My art classes have been anywhere from Bob Ross style, watercolor, acrylic, airbrushing, oils, cloth, yarn, floss... As a child my parents kept me busy with anything using my hands. 

Many times we call our art our therapy!! Making a mess is very relaxing for me!!

I have been lucky to have been involved in a few art “hangings” Worthington. Okoboji & Fairmont and Jackson!!! My belief is that everyone has artistic ability... you just have different talents!!! And you maybe haven’t brought it out yet!!!
