I’m Andrea Flack! I’m currently a senior at the University of Iowa and I’m studying to be a secondary English teacher! I love working with children and helping them find their medium of expression, whether that be writing or art! I love impressionist art, with my favorite being Diego Rivera, and my favorite of his paintings being his History of Mexico mural. My favorite medium to work with right now is watercolor, but I’m excited to explore other mediums as well, and I look forward to sharing my experiences
