Hey Good Parents and Teachers We are living in strange times right now and our children have so many questions. The one I keep getting asked is how to keep kids inspired and entertained in a pandemic? Well here is your chance to help your kid or a kid to blast off into the art realm! I don't have all the wonderful and smart answers for you. I can only share what Ms. V wants to do. I wanna make art with your kids. Yes indeed I do. My heart is to post a few more videos here over the next couple of weeks and months, but I have another special thing to share. I will be a part of Arree Chung's Art Camp over at Come and check it out. Your kid can learn how to draw, color and make a project right from home over here! Arree is such a wonderful teacher and works well with all ages of children. I will be coming on to teach a awesome class in Sketchbook making and collage! So if you are looking for a camp for your kids this summer I'd suggest you stop on over to You'll be glad you did.
