Allison Lesch, MA

Allison Morris Lesch is a visual artist whose practice emphasizes a by-hand, mixed media approach to drawing. Through pencil, ink, and watercolor, she combines natural observation with a love for color, pattern, and design. A firm belief in the arts’ communicative, collaborative nature and their flourishing beyond the individual artist’s studio underlies her work. In turn, Allison views educating others, particularly children and young adults, as a key part of her arts practice. As an educator, she holds a variety of past experiences, including five summers at Laumeier Sculpture Park’s fine arts summer camp and a long-term substitute position at Edgar Road Elementary.

Allison will be receiving her Art Education K-12 teaching certification in May 2018 through UMSL’s accelerated graduate program. She received her Bachelor’s in Art History and Studio Art from SLU in 2015. Notably, Allison remains a grateful alumna of Webster Groves School District for twelve years of foundational education, including one memorable summer as a student of the Gifted Arts program.
