Meet our teachers
GINNY KING grew up in Blacksburg, Va. and now lives in Port Townsend, Washington with two black Chihuahuas. She is an accomplished and enthusiastic crafts person; an avid doll maker, fiber surface designer, screen printer, seamstress, paper crafter (cards, journals and books), oil painter and fan of all things made with license plates and cookie tins. Students describe her workshops as “big fun,” “results I never dared hope for,” “inspiring,” and “a leap to a new avocation.” She'll be teaching a class in art cloth surface design this winter.
"PTSA has great working-artist teachers, and a fantastic range of students. I am pleased to have the opportunity to be both an instructor and a student at this lovely school. We are very lucky to have such a gem in our little town! Perfect fit for Port Townsend!" —Jesse Joshua Watson
PORT TOWNSEND SCHOOL OF THE ARTS was founded in 2015 by local artists and has quickly emerged as a vital community center for connecting artists and learners of all ages.. Our mission is to “Bring out the artist in all of us.” In less than two years, we have enrolled more than 1100 students from ages 6–85 in more than 175 classes taught by more than sixty exceptional regional artists. We offer scholarships to youth and several free community programs. Please support our mission (and save on classes).
