Why Art Education:
Art Education is so important to me! Artmaking has always been one of my strongest languages of communication and built into all of my lessons in the public school system was using art as a tool to communicate. Now, through my business, I offer private art lessons for youth through camp-based experiences. My camps are typically in the age ranges of 6-8, 9-11, or 8-12.
If you'd like to offer a class or camp with me, you can check out my past class curriculum below through the blog stories. I've offered camps on the themes "Art Around the World", "The Write Stuff"(Artmaking while learning cursive writing), as well as "I Made It All" (Children explore how things are made and participate in creating items at all stages of production.) I've offered fun camps with themes like "I Love Summer!" too.
Catherine LaCugna (1952–1997) final simple sentence of her book God for Us was this:
The very nature of God, therefore, is to seek out the deepest possible communion and friendship with every last creature on this earth.
Art enables deep connections, communication, and friendship and so much more. As an artist, my relationship with my own Creator deepens. I love to share art and all that it can teach us with others!
