David Condry
Visual Arts Instructor, Parker
It all started with a helicopter. While my peers were happy to scribble, a young David J. Condry was found rendering a recognizable chopper in crayon on construction paper. Since, then, my media of choice has changed. But my dedication to and passion for visual art has never wavered. In 2008, I received a BFA in Illustration from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Since then, I have have developed a variety of creative portfolios (parents and students can view some of my own illustration work here) and have taught art to all ages in very diverse contexts. Since my creativity really blossomed throughout my childhood, my deepest-seated passion is to see the new generation nurtured in their visual creativity as well! In my class, "we make art that you can SEE" (hence, student's call me Mr. "See").

Kelsea Suarez
Visual Arts Instructor, Castle Pines
I am a Colorado native who recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Design with a teaching emphasis K-12. Throughout the years I have enjoyed volunteering within the community and created multiple works of art for the town of Castle Rock. I also packed my bags and went to Italy for a study abroad program to observe beautiful, historic artwork and Italian culture. From a young age, I have dedicated my life to becoming a primary art teacher and I am very excited for the new school year to come. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to positively impact students through the arts and inspire creativity within American Academy.
