Trevor Twist
Creative Director and Owner of Mitchell School of Fine Arts, as well as an alum and teacher at Boys’ Latin School of Maryland, Trevor Twist earned a B. S. Degree in Art and Architecture from Lehigh University. He then graduated with honors from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Throughout his teaching career, he has realized the benefits of art for a person’s holistic well-being and believes that people truly need art in their lives. He wants to bring those same benefits to a wider audience and through a more playful lens. Trevor’s plan: To save humanity; one artist at a time.

Amy Quinn Digges
Amy Quinn Digges teaches Upper School Art at Boys’ Latin School of Maryland. She is a teacher by day, mom of two and graduate student in Art and Design by night. She was born in Maryland, but spent most of her life jockeying from city to city up, and down I-95 from Philadelphia and Richmond to Georgia, always in search of the right place. After graduating from the University of Georgia, she returned to Baltimore and fell in love with this glorious Charm City. She and her family have lived in Federal Hill since 2003 and have become ensconced in the community. Her goal is to give back to the place she calls home by supporting local establishments as well as local artists. By taking art out of the traditional classroom, Amy’s goal is to bring a fun experience to those who may have dismissed artistic endeavors as something they’re not very good at, as well as to give them a creative outlet for their busy lives.

Mallory Twist
After graduating from Georgetown with a minor in Studio Art and honors in social life, Mallory Twist worked in Washington, DC for the past four years in Customer Service and Event Planning. She is thrilled to be back in Baltimore with the opportunity to bring her hometown a combination of two of her favorite activities; partying with friends and making fashionable art! She believes art is a great resource that helps to lift one’s spirit against the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Mallory is also a graduate of Roland Park Country School.
