Little Picassos & STEAM Art Instructor
Hi! I'm Brooke! I am a mother, teacher, and an art enthusiastic! I love doing craft projects and tapping into my creativity! One of my biggest passions in life is showing children how to unleash their inner " artist" through using different mediums. I believe every child is a unique being with endless potential. I can't wait to encourage your child to be the most creative they can be!
Kidstitchers & Mixed Media Instructor
Hi, I'm Shirley! My first love for art came with mixed media art. Family is what has influenced me, growing up I would watch my grandmother sew, my grandfather whittle, my mom face paint and my father create anything out of everything. I learned to be creative with making use of items we had. The second year in college I was looking for the right bookbag. Of course, I could not find the right bag for my needs. I began to create my own, from there I made men's totes and other personal requests. Nothing ends where creativity begins, with that being said dimensional art is my all-time favorite. With encouragement, an artist rises from the talent within.

Hi, I'm Kelsey!

Art + Soul & Storytime Art Instructor
Hello my name is Sarah, I am an artsy/nature loving girl with a strong want to help people. I began my career with the desire to teach art. I went to college, got a degree in early childhood education, and had the privilege to work and teach in elementary school; it was creative and fulfilling. Later I went back to college and got a masters in psychology and I went on to work in mental health. Now as a mom of four I want to use art as a way to express self love and boost positive emotions. All my art classes encourage personal growth through expressive art. You don't need to have an artistic background to join any of the art classes!

many countries. While growing up, I always wanted to be an artist and participated in many forms of art classes. I enjoy all forms of art and specialize in crochet. I recently retired from the Navy and am thrilled to share my passion of art with my other joy,
