Kristin Pries

9th Grade Art Teacher


Ms. Pries was born in Homewood, a south suburb of Chicago, and traveled to California to study at the Academy of Art San Francisco after High School. After nurturing her artistic talents in the Bay Area for 5 years, Ms. Pries moved back to Chicago to earn her Bachelors Degree in Fine Art Education from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Before joining Intrinsic Schools as the 9th Grade Art Teacher, she worked as a Financial Recruiter in downtown Chicago. Her favorite medium of art is charcoal, and in her spare time Ms. Pries loves to participate in mud runs, curl up with a great book, cook, and explore Chicago.
