Maddy Hellevik is an artist and an art instructor for Sparketh. She creates many of the videos and lesson plans that Sparketh students use to learn art skills at home. Maddy’s favorite thing about her work with Sparketh is the opportunity to unlock artistic potential in young people and teach them a skill that they will enjoy using for the rest of their lives! Maddy feels that pursuing a career in the arts was the greatest decision of her own life, so she is excited about helping kids discover the joy of art-making for themselves. Her favorite artists are Vincent Van Gogh, David Hockney, and Dana Schutz. When Maddy’s not creating or teaching art, you’ll find her doing all kinds of fun things with friends, family and people she loves (from tennis matches to movie parties).
