Mom to 3 young creative thinkers ages 6, 4, and almost 2.
My passion is to show how you can inspire and encourage your own child’s creativity and to connect with your child through hands-on learning and problem-solving with STEAM activities.
STEAM activities is a combination of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) plus Art.
By the time your child enters the workforce, at least 65 % of the jobs don’t even exist today.
STEAM activities can help prepare your child for an unknown future.
Scientists, mathematicians, engineers and business leaders all need to develop creative thinking, critical thinking and problems solving skills to be successful in creating new and unique solutions related to their field or industry.
Teaching your child how to think creatively and how to be a problem solver is how you prepare your children for an unknown future.
With three young children myself, I know how busy life gets and how hard it is to make time to do activities with your children….
but, I’ve done the work for you!
You do not need to be an artist, scientist or mathematician to make learning fun and engaging for your child.
Handmade Kids Art inspires busy parents like you with simple STEAM activities that do not require fancy or expensive materials.
I make it easy for you to find the time to connect and engage with your child.
I have seven years of experience teaching art to children in preschool to 12th grade,
As an art teacher, I connected what my students were learning in the art room with what they were learning in the classroom.
It made sense to me to bridge the gap between art lessons and science, math and reading lessons.
My goal as an art teacher was not to create the next big name professional artist but rather to help develop creative innovative thinkers and problem solvers.
And now I am blessed to inspire my 3 favorite young thinkers.
