Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Because creating art has always been such an important part of my life, a way to express myself and relieve stress, I wanted to share it with others who usually don’t have an opportunity to do it. So I created this independent study, “Connecting Kids with Art,” and here, …
