Mark Watkins - Owner & Lead Instructor
Mark Watkins is an artist with a passion for education. After earning a BFA in Drawing/Painting, he spent several years as a practicing artist in Athens, GA and Atlanta, GA. After getting married to Christy Watkins and becoming a father, he realized that just selling art was not going to be enough. More than just making things, nurturing creativity and excitement about making things became the focus of his career. He returned to the University of Georgia to become a certified art teacher and taught for 5 years in the Dekalb County School district in both elementary and middle school. Mark and Christy live in Lilburn, GA with their 4 children, Jake, Curtis, Matilda, and Lucy. They founded Good Day Studio in 2016 with the goals of sharing the joy of creation with their community and fostering the studio habits of mind that help young people excel in all areas of life.
