About The Art Teacher

Tauna Cole


I am a painter, a professor in the NMSU Department of Art and certified yoga teacher. I have experience teaching kids from ages 3 to 17. For over the last 15 years I've taught private lessons, organized my own summer art camps at various locations around town and have taught art classes at the Las Cruces Museum of Art. I believe that my personal process in finding my creative self has been the impetus for wanting to teach art to kids. I feel it's time to give back and support the kids in my community.


Left Brain Art Brain camp starts June 17th! Each day we will explore a part of STEM with ART.

My philosophy stems from the belief that we all are creative beings and it takes on so many different guises. It’s so important that we nurture, support and have environments where kids can create, explore, discover  and develop their personal expression. Through the act of creating, we discover who we are as individuals and become more confident with ourselves.
