About Chrissy Jones
Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website! My interests lie in exploring how the study of music and art can help ALL people live more creative, connected and enjoyable lives.
Watching people of all ages and abilities (including special needs) discover and re-discover their creativity has been a joy of mine since high school.
Over the years, I've developed my own approach and curriculum, helping EVERY child by customizing methods so ALL may engage in the joy of creating art and music!
I strongly believe that art and music provide a powerful way of bringing comfort, and I gained most of my early experience in places known for comforting others. As a housemother, I enjoyed tutoring children and teaching piano and art to students at Hope Harbor Children's Home in Claremore, OK and Texas Boys Ranch in Lubbock, TX. I partnered with local churches, teachers and restaurants in Gainesville, TX to create The FAM (Family, Art and Music) to help under-resourced children enjoy tutoring, art, cooking and music after school. At St. Mary's School in Gainesville, I volunteered teaching art and music, designed an art program for grades K-8 and wrote/directed a school Christmas play.
Today I love working with students of all ages as we explore history through creating art and music, and often hope for rainstorms mainly so I can use my Romero Britto umbrella!
I am most inspired by Fred Rogers (before it was cool), collect black label vintage Jessica McClintock gunne sax dresses, love Romero Britto's art, and can often be found at OKCMOA.
