Back in 2012 when my son was in first grade, his teacher asked me to help with one of the art projects and when she found out I was an artist, she asked if I would like to teach regularly. I began to come up with projects that would be fun for the kids, and teach them to trust their voice and ability. As he moved up in grades, I came along volunteering in his new classes. I loved being with the kids and watching them find their way through the creative process.

What surprised me was how children, even in first grade, doubted their creativity.

 I am committed to changing that.
