EMILY KORSON
BOARD CHAIR & FOUNDER

Emily is an artist, art educator, and co-founder of our sister organization Seattle ReCreative.  A Colorado native, Emily recently returned to Denver after many adventures in Seattle, Brooklyn, Boston, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon. Emily holds a BA in studio art from Reed College, an Advanced Certificate in Art and Design Education from Pratt Institute and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting & Drawing from the San Francisco Art Institute.

Emily lives, works, and chases her two young daughters in the Wash Park neighborhood. What Emily loves most about her involvement in both ReCreatives is having the opportunity to wear her artist, educator, mom, and community member hats all under two roofs.
