Lisa has been enthralled by art and creativity her entire life. Early on she discovered the powerful effect art can have on shaping a child’s development through incorporating art experiences in her own home, which led her to a career in art education. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, her classes encourage a connection to art by uplifting the wonderment that children naturally bring. It’s the simple, magical connections she sees every day that make her teaching experience so rewarding. When she’s not creating art with her students, Lisa spends most of her time with her family, enjoying the adventure of raising her two incredible boys, along with her husband.
