    Who I am..

    Welcome to Kelly's Art From the Soul!

    I began painting with my grandmother at an early age and have been creating art ever since. I love painting colorful, diverse worlds where people of all cultures come together under the same sun and celebrate as one, embracing similarities and appreciating differences. I see art as a form of therapy for my soul, which is where the name “Kelly’s Art From the Soul” came from. My passions are teaching, kids and art, and I love to spend my summers hosting artist workshops and painting parties. I currently live, teach, and paint in Portland, Oregon. :)

    Newest obsession..

    Pendants made from my paint drips!

    My first 2 batches sold out, stay tuned for the next round, and how you can get your hands on one or more! Feel free to email me if you would like to see the current selection early. I have just started to put them on Etsy. They are great little sparkly gifts for the holidays and only $15 each!

    Pour Parties! Come play with paint and colors to make your very own piece of abstract art! No art experience necessary!

    I host paint pour parties for kids and adults!

    Check out the events links below for upcoming classes or to sign up for a private party! I also will travel to you if you are in the Portland metro area.


    *I am not scheduling any more parties until January 2020, I am booked through the holidays. Thanks!

    Kids Private Paint Pour Party!
    I will come to your house with all of the painting supplies for each kid to make their own, original 12x12" acrylic paint pour!

Price is $30 per kid, travel, set up and clean up is included. $180 is the price for 6 children. Contact me if there are more than 6 kids and I will adjust the price for you.
