Creativity is a way of life for Miki Wise. She is a Kimberly High School Art Instructor, a professional choreographer, a community theatre performer, and she teaches adult painting classes on the side with her “Painting with Miki” business. A former professional Apparel Designer, Miki studied Clothing, Textiles, and Design at UW-Stout, Art Education at Silver Lake College, and she has a Masters Degree in Education from UW-LaCrosse. She was recently awarded the Herb Kohl Fellowship for excellence in education.
She has exhibited her work, been published, and been awarded special recognitions by organizations such as Artspace Collective, J. Richeson Gallery, The Trout Museum of Art, Main Street Artworks, Feather and Bone, and more.
Miki is thrilled about her new personized painting party business where she teaches participants, in a step-by-step manner, to produce beautiful paintings they can be proud of. She will teach a class anywhere (in a home or restaurant, etc.) for events such as bachelorette parties, team building activities, reunions, couples’ date nights, and more. Miki holds public events every month at Hilde’s Deli and Bakery in Chilton and this opportunity has really helped “Painting with Miki” grow! Check out her page on Facebook for more details.
