As much as I like watching kids color and paint, there is absolutely no substitute for the tactile experience of clay. I am lucky to have a kiln at my school but not everyone does. You may be a home-educator who doesn’t own a kiln (nor should you!)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm Patty, founder of Deep Space Sparkle and The Sparklers Members Club and the soon-to-be author of Draw, Paint, Sparkle (Roost Books publication date 8/2017) I help busy teachers with creative, standards-infused art lessons that kids LOVE. If you teach art at home or in school, my art lessons will help you teach art to kids, even if you don't consider yourself a great artist. I'll walk you through set-up, supplies, what to say and what to expect. Can't wait to help you teach art to kids!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Children and art are a natural combination. I strive to balance direct line instruction, observation techniques and free expression to produce art lesson that every child can use to be successful. I use basic materials and teach techniques that are age appropriate and grade specific. I save my best lessons for my ebooks and provide detailed photo-tutorials taken in the classroom. Art teachers around the world have used my ebooks when developing their art curriculums.
