Our staff are the essence of Living Arts School: playful, intuitive, loving and creative.
Director Elizabeth Uhrich’s background is in education, and her journey includes co-founding and directing a progressive school for young children, teaching for 10 years and speaking at conferences on the topic of education. For her, the folk school is a natural outbirth of her passion for education. After all, “The hands built the head, not the other way around.” (Aonghus Gordan, Ruskin Mill Trust). She holds a BA in Philosophy from Colorado College and an MA in Educational Psychology from CU Denver. She also currently holds a Director’s Certification from the CDHS and a Colorado Teacher License. She lives with her family and their small dog in Erie, and loves to be outdoors or playing music, whenever she can.
Lead Summer Camp Counselor, Casey Kealey, is a quality driven educator with a background in Waldorf Education, Primate Care and Research, Recreational Caregiving, and Federal / Non-profit service. Casey is passionate about the folk education movement, and believes children become more curious and grounded in themselves when educators revive practical crafts, living skills and rituals in our current education and culture. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Naropa University, and studied further at CU Boulder (Biological Anthropology) and The Primate Studies Field School in Rwanda. Through navigating diverse work and academic experiences, Casey has developed an eclectic and comprehensive knowledge base for The Living Arts School to draw from. She is super excited to work with Living Arts children this summer!
