Let's Get Started...

You know art is super important for kids, but you don’t know how to start.
Maybe you are wondering how to get 25 Kinders to paint on the paper instead of their faces.
You want to do the pretty projects but aren’t sure what supplies to use. You got the desire but not the know-how.
I get it and that’s where I can help.

Our business began by sharing what I was teaching in the art room that worked – and what didn’t work. From my first blog post in 2009, teachers from around the world have shared their stories and struggles, asked for advice and direction. Now twelve years later, we couldn’t be more proud to not only design lovely lessons, but to be a supportive guide through many art teachers’ careers.

I’m so glad that your interest in children’s art guided you to us. This page shares our story – how it all began plus I’ll point out all the resources our team has created to help you create an art program, share art with your children or even start an art business of your own…
