Writing about art and the art world is an interest of hers as well and McCampbell has been featured columnist and writer for various publications and magazines such as Thrive Global, Nashville Arts Magazine and Number, Inc.
She believes in experimentation with art and Einding joy through “playing with art.” The act of making art—the process of it in her opinion, is one of the best teachers. “When I teach, I like to meet each artist right where they are in their path as a painter. We each possess an innate style that is as unique as our handwriting. It’s my job to help uncover each artist’s voice.” She offers free instruction and encouragement through her YouTube Channel: “McCampbell Art Studio” where she often invites friends to her to studio to paint (“Painting with Friends” series) or, alone with her in the series, “The Imperfect Painter.”
Her in-depth knowledge of art materials, design elements and art principles gives each student a strong background in foundational art school instruction. McCampbell believes that, “If you know the tools out there to use, and the basics of design theory, then you will achieve your vision. I try to make sure each student understands how to get where they want to go with their art.”
