Meet the Teachers


Jalaina Felker

Art Educator

Hi! My Name is Jalaina Felker, and I am a senior studying Art Education at Colorado State University! I love all art forms but I am most interested in painting, photography, and pottery. My artwork most often involves feminism and women empowerment. I love art because everyone has their own voice and point of view that can become known through visual interpretation. Some fun things to know about me are that I have been dancing since I was two years old and now I teach it, I am obsessed with my dog, Ricky, and my favorite color changes daily. I am excited to create with you this semester!

Tory Hessling

Art Educator

HI, I'm Tory! I am originally from Milwaukee Wisconsin. I am studying Art Education at Colorado State University as a Senior. I have a passion for art and teaching art. My favorite medium is oil paint and my favorite subject to paint are landscapes. I often reference impressionism in my paintings. My goal as an educator is to make a difference in my student's educational experience. My high school art teacher helped me pursue my education in art. I still keep in touch with her till this day and thank her for helping me pursue my dream.
