Art Made Easy Podcast #005: Artful practices for Young Artists with Rachelle Doorley

Today is episode 5 of Art made Easy. I promised you back in November that if I decided to host a podcast, I would commit to at least 6-months. The learning curve has been steep and the investment of time is immense, but I love having conversations with creative folks in our industry. I’m learning how a podcast works ( as many of you are!) so please bear with me as I learn how to interview, talk into a mic and carry a conversation for 45-minutes. That’s the fun part; moving past comfort zones and learning new things.

Today I talk with Rachelle Doorley of the blog Tinkerlab and the author of the book, Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide For Little Inventors. Rachelle is a former costume designer turned art educator turned blogger and author.  She shares a vast amount of information about creating art with younger children in both her blog, book and now this show.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is creating art in a home environment especially with preschool children and for those who are interested in how to cultivate creative growth.
