About the Teaching Artists:

In 2014, he created a mural with Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthy America and in late 2016, Regan Arts released his book "Transform Your Life with Color By Number". His studio, The RePOP Shop & Gallery 52 are housed in a former gas station in Jeffersonville, New York.
