Adult Pottery Teacher

Stephanie Hillman has always loved the arts, specializing in watercolor and ceramics, she has been creating art her entire life and studied both mediums extensively through local art schools and programs as a child and young adult.  She has participated in and helped run many local art festivals and events and has a large connection within the art community in Salt Lake. Stephanie has been a professional artist and teacher for 16 years and loves sharing her knowledge through teaching, which prompted her to open her own art school in 2016. Her business, Art Haus, focuses on offering high quality art classes to children and adults focusing on pottery, painting and drawing. With the success of opening her school, Stephanie was accepted into the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program and completed her business certification in 2021 which helped her grow her business into one of the largest art schools in Salt Lake. Art Haus has become more than just a school, but an amazing studio of artists and instructors who inspire creativity and bring a sense of community to the city. Stephanie has also worked with local non profits through volunteering and donating her time as a board member to bring the arts to the underserved communities in Salt Lake. Art is an essential part of the human experience and Stephanie believes that everyone deserves to have equal access to the arts. 


When Stephanie is not running her business or creating, she spends most of her time outdoors. Her favorite activities are hiking, backpacking, skiing, and generally just spending as much time out in nature along with her dogs.

Hi! My name is Ariel, and I’ve been an art lover all my life. I’ve been studying drawing and painting throughout my academic career. I recently graduated at UVU in illustration, gaining a great network of like-minded artists and mentors. Since graduating I’ve had the privilege of teaching painting to a wide range of folks, and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it! Along with teaching I paint pet portraits, family portraits, and do live wedding painting. I love to learn new mediums and ways to create. I can’t wait to meet fellow artists at Art Haus!



Children's Art Teacher

Receptionist/Office Assistant

Hi! My name is Cabby and I teach kids drawing and painting. I am from Louisville, Kentucky and have been making art for as long as I can remember, beginning with mini art lessons with my dad and my “how to draw animals” book.  Once I began high school I started to take painting more seriously and would spend time outside of class creating paintings out in nature, which is still my favorite way to paint. I received a Bachelor of Arts at Transylvania University, majoring in studio art. During the summers of high school and some of college I worked as a summer camp counselor in North Carolina and it was always the highlight of my year. Teaching kids new skills and seeing them light up as they discover their talents was always so rewarding. After college I worked mostly in the service industry while making art on the side as much as I could. Now, having just moved to Salt Lake City this past September I am so grateful to be able to combine my passions of making art and working with kids at such a great studio as Arthaus. Outside of work you can find me hiking with my husband and our dog, painting in the canyons, baking ponderosa cake, or having a scoop of mint chip at Hatch Family Chocolates.

Adult Pottery Teacher

I am a pottery instructor at Art Haus in Salt Lake City. I have practiced oil painting, printmaking, welding and ceramics. You can visit my website at
I started doing pottery in high school, I struggled with the wheel but found a love for hand building. I always had an interest in the arts starting with music at a young age. 
After high school I withdrew myself from art. Only when I found myself at Weber State University, in 2014 I found myself back exploring the visual arts. After encouragement from a professor I changed my major to the fine arts, and I finally learned how to throw, and I spent most of my semester helping the new students with their first week of throwing and friends who didn’t trust themselves on the wheel. While being a student, I have worked in an art gallery as an assistant, and as the director of the Shepherd Union Art Gallery. I graduated from the program in 2018, after having many work experiences in the pottery studio at Weber State.
I have always found pottery to be meditative and relaxing. It is something I hope to pass on to my students.
