Hi! My name is Donna Vila and I have been inspiring adults and children of all ages to achieve their greatest artistic potential for more than 30 years. I am a New York State certified Art Teacher and Professional Empowerment Coach. I present a unique “no mistakes” step by step method of drawing which trains the eye to see, builds self-confidence, and raises the self-esteem of my students. I am the former founder and creator of Kreative Kids Fine Art Workshop in NY. As a public and private school art teacher, I have instructed my students in drawing, painting, computer graphics, sculpture, pottery, and ceramics. I have touched the lives of thousands of children and their families. Many of my students have won awards for their art work throughout New York State. They have moved on to pursue extremely successful art careers in fashion, architecture, furniture and graphic design. I continue to follow my passion for helping others develop their artistic skills and talents with KreativeKidsDraw.com. I use my experience and specialized coaching skills to help students achieve outstanding and successful artistic results online.
Humor and fun :D
