Kara is the Lead Teacher here at PlayArts. She studied Painting and Costume Design at Penn State University and earned her K-12 Art Education Certification from Moore College of Art and Design. Bearing witness to the creativity, resourcefulness and complex personalities of the kids at Playarts has been one of the greatest sources of joy for Kara over the last few years. When not at PlayArts, Kara can be found biting her nails, trying to perfect her grandmothers' sauce and making stuff. She lives in Fishtown with her husband and dog Celia Cruz, (CC for short). You will know her around town as the person who sheepishly tries to say hello if she thinks she knows you.
