Teacher Spotlight: Sandi Silvious

Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors we've been so honored to meet.  We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better. 

So, here are four questions to help get to know our Calligraphy instructor Sandi Silvious before her sold out class tonight!

How did you get started in the world of calligraphy?

I wanted to develop my creative self which had been “put on the back burner” for too long. I’ve always had an interest in and an appreciation for the art of calligraphy. So, in 2010, I began pursuing the study of calligraphy by ordering some self-study resources and signing up for classes. Since then, I have been enjoying the study, practice and creation of this art.

Why do you love Chattanooga?

There is so much good about this special city of Chattanooga. It has a thriving creative culture and art district, an abundance of natural beauty and a rich history. I love its size and the warmth of its people. Also, my husband and I feel it has been a great place to raise our two children (who are ages 14 and 17 now). 

What's one topic you'd like to learn through The Chattery?

Graphic design.

What's something someone would be surprised to learn about you?

I was a CPA years ago. I enjoy using both the left and right sides of my brain. :)
