Hey there, art lover!
I’m Patty Palmer, founder of Deep Space Sparkle and your instructor for this class.
Teaching art in a public school classroom for 13 years has taught me a thing or two about teaching art to kids. And teaching adults how to teach art to kids has taught me even more.
I know how important art is to the healthy development of a child and so do you.
Many of you may worry that you don’t have the necessary skills to teach art to your child or group of kids.
That’s where I come in.
I’ll show you how to bring out the creative best in all children with easy-to-do projects, cool techniques, and kid-tested teaching tips.
