Bio: Tyrell Coover, owner and founder of Alt Art Ed, has a degree in art education and has taught Digital Photography, Art Appreciation, Digital Art I & II, Life Skills, Fashion and Interior Design, and Art History at the high school level. The Longmont, CO resident and Michigan native has taught art to all ages of children and adults through community classes, a private school, and after school programs. After completing an internship at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Tyrell was offered a position there teaching art experience to local underserved children, as well as being a guest educator in their hugely popular summer program.
In 1995, Tyrell displayed work in her first college art show and has since shown work in multiple juried competitions, galleries, art festivals, and public buildings. In 2011, she participated in her first of many live painting performances through the international art company, RAW, who also featured her work and created a promotional video for her. She was asked to return to RAW as a live painter and featured artist in the 2014 show in Boulder. Her last art show was at the historic Callahan House in Old Town Longmont in May of 2019 and her last live painting event was at Apotheosis, the Burning Man DeComp Party in Denver this past fall.
Tyrell lives in Longmont with her husband, three children, dog, and kitty. Besides all aspects of art, she enjoys traveling with her family (and without her family), seeing live music, eating and making good food, photography, meditation, self-evolution, herbalism, and hiking. Aside from teaching art and creativity to people in all phases of life, Tyrell recently joined the staff of the Alandi Ayurvedic School and Ashram.
