Come and make art side by side as a family. Families will explore a new medium each week and create a beautiful project together. Create unique pieces of jewelry or keychains by making your own plastic charms. Shrinky dinks are a fun materials where artists can create drawings on plastic, then shrink them in the toaster oven to create hard plastic charms. It's a magical medium that is super fun to watch and create!

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
