Cheska Banez is an Art Education Major at Utah Valley University who is passionate about using her talents to help elementary kids reach their best potential. Cheska started exploring the visual arts at the young age of 5 and has since then developed skills in graphite, charcoal, vector art, acrylic, and oil painting. Her love for teaching began at age 12 when she started teaching at church. She continues to practice this craft even in past jobs as a tutor and now as full time ESL teacher to students ages 3-11 years old. She loves the arts and hopes to help ignite a creative spark in the young generation right away, so that the treasures of imagination and honesty will never fade away.
