Your Instructor:

Cleveanne Kauffman was born in Jefferson City but was raised on a 168 acre farm near California, MO. She attended school in California, and in high school was very active in band, choir, art club, track, and cheerleading. After graduating high school in 1981, Cleveanne attended the University of Missouri, Columbia where she earned a BFA in Graphic Design, but also started earning credits for her teaching degree in art. After 5 years in Columbia she moved to St. Louis, which has been her home ever since.

Cleveanne settled in South County and attended Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville to complete her teaching certificate. She was hired for an elementary teaching position in the Mehlville School District after she completed her student teaching hours for that district. She continued her education and earned a MS in Secondary Art Education, as well as certification in Gifted Art Education.

Cleveanne taught elementary art for 13 years; moved up to a middle school art position where she stayed for eight years; then finished her career teaching drawing and painting for six years at Mehlville High School. During the years spent teaching in elementary and middle school, she taught in the Gifted Visual Art Program for 10 years. Cleveanne retired from her incredible 27 year teaching career in spring of 2017. She plans to spend as much time as possible pursuing her personal goals as an artist; which will involve drawing with graphite and colored pencil; watercolor portraits and still life compositions; as well as Plein Air painting in both watercolor and pastels.

She is personally most proud of raising two amazing young men, both of whom are attending Missouri State University, in Springfield. One is pursuing a career in Psychology and the other in Entertainment Marketing/Audio Engineering. We are thrilled to welcome Cleveanne to the SkyStone family of artists!
