MEET YOUR TEACHER: Kathy Dennin- Meagher

I believe everyone was born creative. Creativity comes in many forms.  We may not say we are artists, however we still create and make with our hands. I would like to offer you the opportunity to reconnect with your creative side.

The studio name was inspired by the process that happens when you get a creative idea… a light turns on in your head!

Art should be something that satisfies the soul and takes on a personal form that is as unique as the individual who creates it.  At Raye of Light, we teach to inspire so that you can continue to learn outside the studio.  I want to help you to try art, maybe for the first time.  It’s never too late to learn, and it will bring a lifetime of enjoyment.

Raye of Light Studio has recently evolved from a small, 130-square-foot, colorful teaching studio in Annapolis Maryland and relocated in Delaware.  My Studio originally opened its doors in the Annapolis Design District in 2016. Now we are located in the beautiful little town by the sea called Ocean View Delaware. We are part of Henneghan’s Run, located  at 117 Atlantic Ave , in the back of the blue building.

Raye of Light Studio provides creative opportunity for people to create three different ways. W hen inspiration strikes you can pop in and draw or paint during open studio hours. You can  select from a  variety of fun drawing or painting  group classes and guest workshops. We schedule a different one everyday we are open. You can also schedule for your group to come in making your own art date,  or take a private lesson by appointment.

By teaching you to draw, paint, or print on your own or with a friend for a few hours, is our goal.


I am originally from Cincinnati and transplanted to Maryland over 30 years ago. I have been a summer resident of Ocean View since 2010. I come from a talented family of entrepreneurs, painters, musicians,  builders and architects. Born an artist but also formally trained, I received my BFA in graphic design.  I love color, design, and drawing. Illustration is my lane for it frees the imagination.

Bringing art as a form of creative learning  helps you nurture a personal skill you didn’t know you still had. It’s in there, you just need someone to help you find it.  I love seeing you discover that inner light.

I also provide portfolio prep for those preparing for art school,  and  teach drawing and watercolor in the Life Long Learning Department , at Anne Arundel Community College.

Get outside your routine and get creative ~
