Instructor: Olivia Garcia-Hassell uses the “handle” The OG Art Teacher and is an Amon Carter Community Artist. She has been teaching art to various ages and abilities since 2009 and thinks art is for everyone and anyone can create art. She believes that the process of creation is meditative, which is an excellent activity for our brains and hearts. She loves to paint with watercolors and draw in pencil. Her favorite subjects are animals, nature, portraits of people and pets, cars, horses, raccoons, dinosaurs, and anything someone can give her a reference photo for. Currently, she teaches private lessons to all ages and abilities while taking commissions for watercolors and drawings. She loves to take walks on the Trinity, in the Botanic Garden, at the Nature Center, around Benbrook Lake, on the trails of Gateway Park, and at Marion Samson Park. At home, she has loads of cacti, a dog, a rabbit, and a sulcata tortoise. Her art studio is in her garage, which is where she teaches virtual private art lessons and works on commissions. Connect with her at, via email at or on social media @the_og_art_teacher.
