About Caitlin Rose Moore


I am an artist, writer, wild animal caretaker, and passionate educator.

I am a tutor and after school enrichment teacher. I have worked at Community Education Partnerships and the SF Jamestown Community Center. I am experienced as a tutor in the arts: literacy, creative writing, and art. I also tutor children in subjects such as identity, gender, social justice and community. I am a strong believer in multicultural classes and bringing everyone together. I am a tutor for children from the 3rd grade through 8th. I studied education at Berkeley City College, specializing in helping children read. I love creating exciting lesson plans and engaging children in thought, play and action.

When it comes to art, I graduated in 2018 from the San Francisco Art Institute with a BFA in Painting. I also love drawing and soft sculpture -- subjects I teach -- from making fairy wings and stuffed creatures to self-portraits as alter egos and as animals.

I am a creative writer, having studied privately under New York Times Notable Book of the Year author, Cecile Pineda. I write stories for children and for everyone. I help children to craft stories and poems while learning about writing techniques and exploring the sounds of words.

I am a wild animal caretaker at the Marine Mammal Center raising harbor seals. I use this experience to teach children about natural history and explore our love of animals together.

I incorporate these loves into my teaching. I am excited to present to you my newest classes online. I have been teaching online in the spring and summer of 2020. I have experience using online learning to create a community where we can trust each other, explore our passions, be ourselves and grow.



Mission Statement


At Wild Imagination Classes, we believe in transformative learning -- that art is tied to the unconscious and can truly help children grow and vitally express themselves.

We believe that in a safe and structured environment, children can feel free to experiment and innovate.

Children have a unique way of seeing that we will encourage -- teaching them new skills but allowing their imaginations to flourish.

In this time of online learning, we will bring everyone together through art, play, and science to form a community with children from all over the world.
