Mrs. Kallie Cheves

Mrs. Kallie is an artist and teacher living and working in Bulverde, Texas. She is originally from Boerne, going on to Trinity University to receive her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art, majoring in photography and minoring in new media. While in undergraduate school, Mrs. Kallie was selected to be part of the McNair Scholars program, where she conducted and presented original research. With encouragement from this graduate-study preparation program, she received her Master of Fine Arts degree in studio art from the University of Texas at San Antonio. She is currently a resident artist and co-director of Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery in San Antonio, Texas. Cheves has exhibited extensively in Texas, nationally, and in Ireland. Her work involves photographic installations that hold deep roots in surrealism. She has an upcoming artist residency at Casa Lu in Mexico City in the summer of 2020.

Mrs. Kallie has six years of education experience, teaching a variety of courses and age levels. She has been an adjunct instructor at UTSA, Trinity University, and the Baptist University of the Americas teaching photography, exhibitions, and art appreciation. She has also taught art for pre-k through third grade in San Antonio for the past three years. It is through her experience of teaching university-level students that she has gained such a love for teaching younger artists and broadening their ability to perceive and interpret all that they make and see.

Through her practice, she weaves art historical and contemporary art themes into media-focused projects thus organizing an understanding of critical conversations that exist in the world and implementing those ideas in original artwork. Above all, she believes that art expands the narrative and raises mindfulness. Art elicits empathy, helping everyone better understand each other and achieve compassion. Her aim as an art educator is to help students learn this power and wield it into acts of kindness and purpose far beyond her classroom.
