Kathryn Samaltanos, Co- Director of Seed Studio is a twice certified yoga/meditation instructor, holistic body worker, sound therapist and lifelong artist. 

She has been teaching  yoga and meditation to children and adults for the past 20+ years and loves to share her passion for connection, creativity and nature to students of all ages.  Kathryn believes in the importance of  sharing the tools of mindfulness, meditation and self awareness to children early on to help them to gracefully navigate through our fast paced, digital world. She knows the power that self acceptance and inner peace can bring to our lives and sees art as a healthy form of self-expression. 

 When she's not at Seed Studio, she is most likely on an adventure with the two who hold her heart,  her wily son, Phoenix and their rascally little dog Yoshi.

Heidi Craw, Co- Director of Seed Studio, has been drawing, painting and creating ever since she can remember. Born and raised in Colorado she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Fort Lewis College where she studied studio art with a concentration in printmaking. She has been teaching art to children of all ages for the past 16 years.

Heidi enjoys the creative challenge of making art from just about anything, loves working with the brilliant minds of children and is always excited to share her love of art with others. In addition to Seed Studio, Heidi teaches art at Durango Montessori and Columbine Christian School during the school year.

In her free time, Heidi enjoys creating art for herself, spending time with her amazing family, being outside and the occasional good book.
