About us

Manda Mackintosh

Studio Owner & Instructor


I always say, "I have the best job!" And I truly mean it! I have loved making art ever since I can remember. 


As a small child, my passion for the visual arts was initially sparked by my own artisitc Mom.  It was nurtured by many teachers and professors throughout my life who inspired me to do more. That same passion is now driven by my own determination to inspire and bring the joy of art to others. 


I have been teaching art to all ages for over 13 years. First, in Frederick County Public Schools, and for the last 8 years in my own studio. I also enjoy the privelige of taking my lessons on the road to other's classrooms and groups to share the benefits and wonders of creativity and art making.


The only thing I love more than teaching art, is my family. I am a mother of two beautiful sweet little stinkers, Cortland (4) & Annabelle (1) and the wife of a wonderful supportive husband, Drew. 


Krissy Benson

Art Explorer & Homeschool Instructor


Mrs. Krissy is truly  a blessing at Art & Soul. When Manda's second child came along, so did Krissy. She helped out with classes while Manda was on maternity leave, and thankfully.... she never left!


Krissy's amazingly warm personality makes everyone feel comfortable in her presence.  Her love for the arts and her passion for teaching is unmeasurable.  Krissy has now taken over the role as the Home School Art Instructor and Pre K Art Explorer Instructor.


When she is not making art in the studio, you can bet she is at home making it with her two beautiful and equally talented girls, Sarah (11)  & Gabby (6). I'm also sure her husband, Patrick, gets in on the art making too! They are one artisic family!!
