Making art should be fun! I am sensitive to children’s feelings and needs and encourage them to focus on the fun process of making art versus making creations that are “perfect.” It takes time to build skills, as children enjoy making art, over time they feel more confident and proud of their creations. I love offering mixed age group classes where kids can help each other and create art and crafts they can use and show off.
