  • Hello and thanks for visiting!

    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. :)

    Pour Parties! My newest obsession..Come play with paint and colors to make your own abstract piece of art!

    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.

    Have an artist at your next party!

    I can also come to you and set up a super cool painting station for kids to enjoy!

    They can create with paint freely, or I can teach a direct paint class to the kids with an image we decide on beforehand.

    Pour Party- Aug 16th
    Hello friends! I will be opening up our garage for paint parties August 16th! I'll have 2 sessions, one at 11, one at 1:00, just email what time you want to go to kellysimps@gmail.com. Each session lasts about 1-1 1/2 hours. We will be doing the dirty pour flip cup technique. Maximum 8 people per session. Under 6 need an adult to help them when they actually pour the paint. :)

    $35 per person. You can pay at the event, or early, on here on my website. Hope to see you here to get your paint on!
