Mrs. Cara Ristau


I am a teacher and an artist who returned to St. Louis in 2019 after three years away from the city. I am so excited to be back and working with your young artists. I fell in love with art education as an intern with the Contemporary Art Museum, during which time I always wanted to have my own classroom. In my own work, I enjoy printmaking images of animals and painting portraits of people close to me. 

Throughout the school year, we will be exploring many techniques with sculpture, drawing, painting, and printmaking, and most importantly, discovering the artists that surround us!

 I can be reached via the phone number and email on this page. Additionally, I am a member of your child's teacher's teams page. Any virtual assignments will be posted on this website as well as the "Visual Arts" channel of your student's teacher's page.
