Art Beat Olympia is two artists on a mission to bring equitable access to art education to elementary students in Olympia. Our proposal for the pilot year of a Teaching Artist Residency has been accepted at Roosevelt Elementary! Good things are happening! Join us on this mission. Because Art is Essential.

Who we are

Classes are taught by teaching artists Yvonne Kunz and Trixy Eichler. Yvonne is an artist with 20 years of experience and K-12 certificated art specialist. She has taught art in museum settings, and at the elementary and secondary levels. Trixy attended Cornish College of the Arts, is a business woman, an artist with over 20 years of experience and a recent TATLab graduate. She has works with local schools as a teaching artist.


We provide teaching artist services and consultation. We also advocate for the arts in the Olympia, WA and South Sound area.

Our mission is to foster equitable access in the arts for students in the South Sound Area.
