About Our Instructors:

Nelson Barnard:
Nelson is a talented musician with audio engineering skills and a passion for teaching. He has been playing music with his family from age 7, was in a punk band throughout high school and learned how to record, book shows, and promote events along the way. He has the hands on experience to teach many aspects of the music business.

Kayla Gaska (AKA Missile America):
A recent graduate from the Art Institute of Seattle, I am thrilled to share my knowledge and passion of the arts with anyone. Having the chance to work with teens is an awesome experience because I see their creative minds at work. I am open to all ideas and love letting one teen and another express themselves through art. An interesting fact about me, I play roller derby for Seattle’s own Rat City Roller Girls.

Rosie Casey:
I grew up in Michigan where there isn't much to do so I was always drawing or making crafts. My mom is an excellent seamstress and she taught me how to sew at a young age, so in high school I really enjoyed making my own clothing. I attended art school at the University of Michigan where I fell in love with weaving, silk screening and fabric design. I was fortunate to be able to study abroad in Kyoto, Japan where I studied indigo dyeing and a traditional form of weaving. After college I lived in Montreal and then Japan again continuing my artistic endeavors while working at a chocolate factory and then as an English teacher. Now I have landed in Seattle where I am working for millinery designer Leigh Young at Pandemonium Hats. The six things I could never live without (besides friends and family) are bubble tea, animals, fortune cookies, the ocean, colors and nachos! I look forward to meeting you : )

Bryan Gordon:
Over the past three years, Bryan has been empowering youth to find their voice through Digital Arts. With a wide range of expertise, he is able to focus on what his percipients are interested in and give them a truly meaningful experience. When he isn’t watching bad movies starring Jean Claude Van Dam or working on his Legend of Zelda sleeve, you’ll find Bryan spending way too much time on the internet or thinking about plots for future productions.
