About

Cheryl's profile pictureWel­come!  I’m Cheryl, and I’m a big fan of kids’ art­work!  I’ve been teach­ing Art to kids for over 20 years. Noth­ing is more inspir­ing than watch­ing kids of all ages dis­cover their abil­ity to be creative!

There’s some­thing spe­cial about  the per­son­al­ity, charm, char­ac­ter, and spon­tane­ity found in the art kids cre­ate. Hid­den inside this cre­ative process are incred­i­ble ben­e­fits.… Art gives kids the free­dom to make choices where there isn’t only one “right” answer, encour­ag­ing crit­i­cal think­ing and self-expression. Plus, it devel­ops skills of analy­sis, prob­lem solv­ing, inven­tion, and reflec­tion.… the same thought processes used by today’s great thinkers, inven­tors, and lead­ers. And, kids love it!!

I have a degree in art and an art ed cre­den­tial, but I’ve learned that you don’t need to be an “artist” or have an art back­ground your­self to teach the basics of art to kids. All you need are good lessons to fol­low (like fol­low­ing a recipe) and the will­ing­ness to have fun with it! Over the years, I’ve devel­oped hun­dreds of suc­cess­ful art lessons for kids, and my pas­sion now is to make them acces­si­ble, so more kids can ben­e­fit from them.  I hope you’ll use these lessons to share the joy of ART with the kids in your life!

Some of the links on my web­site are affil­i­ate links.  Affil­i­ate links will direct you to sites like Amazon.com, where you can pur­chase or get more infor­ma­tion about the books or prod­ucts I talk about.  If you make a pur­chase by click­ing through my site, I get a small com­mis­sion. I will only link to spe­cific prod­ucts that I per­son­ally use and love!  Any reviews that I post are my per­sonal opin­ion… I’m not paid or oth­er­wise com­pen­sated for those.  But please.… when­ever pos­si­ble, shop local first and sup­port your local art store!
