Mrs. Teara Dillon
Teara Dillon is a local artist from Leavenworth, Washington. She creates in many different media and has a passion to teach others to explore their individual voice. Teara believes that sharing unique views creates diversity and allows us to celebrate our differences. She is inspired by bright colors, the human and animal form, and nature. Impressionism is a favorite style of hers, with the loose, quick brush strokes, thick impasto texture, and generous use of color. Teara also feels that Cubism style challenges the mind and eye and reminds us that even though we are looking at the same thing, we may see it differently.
Teara has her Bachelors of Fine Arts in K-12 Art Education, a Masters in Curriculum, and is a National Board Certified Teacher in visual arts at Cascade School District. At Cascade, Teara instructs middle school and high school classes in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, digital media, and photography. Teaching is kept fresh as artists explore their way through the creative process and share their perspective on our world. You may also find Teara around town teaching classes for Sip and Paint. Being able to teach and create with such a wide spectrum has allowed Teara to deeply appreciate individual differences.
You can find Teara’s paintings at Sleeping Lady Resort, Wenatchee and Moses Lake offices of Central Washington Oral and Facial Surgery, Tumwater Bakery, and in private collections.
