Jamie Shilling
Music and Art Teacher

Jamie fans the creative flame in our children. She has been at KapKa since its foundation in the late 1980s. Drawn to create in transformative ways within community, she believes it is essential that children have their creative spirits acknowledged and be able to practice making their ideas visible. Art done by the children in Jamie’s program hangs framed in family homes for years to come.

Jamie facilitates collaboration between teachers and students to enrich the curriculum with visual arts and music. Many of the well-loved KapKa songs have been co-written by Jamie and our students.

Jamie finds deep joy in creative expression through vocal music and her own painting and drawing. She has a bachelor's degree Art and Education.
