Mrs. Dorie Linn Gayner

Hi All.

I look forward to an excellent 2019-2020 School Year. I am excited to meet the new students and see the returning students.  

A little about me

I am an artist and a teacher. I love children and imparting my love for art. I have lived in Colorado for 10 years and have been at MVHSA most of that time. I have two children, Gretchen (26), and Greysen (21). I love to hike, play tennis and pickleball. I also love to paint, draw, go to the theatre and music.  I love to see friends and family.  I am always trying to hone my art skills by taking classes and spending free time doing art. Last summer I attended an Arts 360 Conference that inspired me and got me super excited for this year. I have lots of new ideas and techniques to share. This summer I traveled with my husband and it inspired me to paint and draw. I'm happy that I will have your child in the art room. There are no mistakes in the Art Room, exceot to not try.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and Nutrition from Albion College, and a Masters Degree from University of Phonix in Administration/Supervision. I have dabbled in Real Estate, Art Sales and In Home art lessons.  I love to learn and am always looking for ways to creste snd use different media.improve my drawing and painting skills. I love to design jewelry and interiors.

I look forward to a wonderful year filled with art experiences.

All the best,

Mrs. Gayner


I am looking forward to experimenting with, learning with and growing with your child this school year.
