the importance of art in our lives
“Research indicates that a child who is exposed to the arts acquires a special ability to think creatively,
be original, discover, innovate, and create intellectual property—
key attributes for individual success and social prosperity in the twenty-first century.”
International Child Art Foundation
a studio space where students can explore different art media in class sizes small enough for plenty of individual attention (8 students or less). Besides learning to draw and paint, children can create artwork for competitions, learn about humanities, or simply develop fine motor skills.
I have started artskiddoo to inspire our youth to create art and design, and to share information about art masters and graphic designers. My background includes
an MFA in Graphic Design,
decades of print design work, and
the launch & instruction of the Meet the Masters art curriculum
at Park Village Elementary from 2006-2014.
