Gnome Homes + Fairy Gardens (Ages 6-8)
Make whimsical small worlds with a variety of materials like clay, collage, paint, natural materials, even shrinky dinks. Keep your creation indoors or bring components of it outdoors to your own garden. We'll also make some fun garden art to help lure gnomes and fairies into your garden.

About the Instructor
As a child, art gave me confidence, focus, and motivation in school. I spent my free time playing in the woods, drawing, and taking care of my many pets – which included several cats and even a small flock of sheep. My artwork today is filled with inspiration from these experiences, especially nature and animals.
I enjoy sharing my talents with others; to empower the struggling student, include the exceptional, and inspire anyone with an interest in creating. I have a BFA in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I previously worked as an elementary art teacher in Charles City County. Following the birth of my 2 lovely daughters, my focus changed to Early Childhood Education. I earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education from John Tyler Community College and am currently a lead teacher at a play-based preschool in Bon Air where my days are filled with art, music, and fun with the 3-4 year olds in my class.See More Classes By Instructor
