I started blogging as a way to connect with other families that have chosen this crazy homeschool lifestyle.  (You guys are good people; the most encouraging, helpful bunch out there!)

Along the way I’ve realized what I really love doing is sharing my gift of creativity with other families. Making things comes easy to me.  I need to make things in order to feel happy.


Check out this post to hear more about what my blog means to me and why I do what I do! (And why you should find something you love too!)

I enjoy making all kinds of stuff; cooking, sewing, blogging, painting, you name it.  I don’t do any of it because I’m particularly talented at it but because it feeds me.  Making art isn’t about being “good” at it!

Free access to my Resource Library…

Whether you’re a homeschooler, a classroom teacher, or a mom that just loves seeing her kids create I want to be that resource that helps you along the way! In my quest for materials and resources for my own kids I’ve discovered that I’d like to share my own talent and be a creative resource for all of you!  I love creating printable resources that can help anyone teach their kiddos basics about art. 

My Resource Library is home to dozens and dozens of free printables..  There’s no catch.  It’s free for you to use in your home or classroom.  To get access to all of my printables in PDF form all you have to do is subscribe to my weekly newsletter.  You get one email a week (no more) letting you know what we’ve been up to and what new printables I’ve added to my library! 

Pretty sweet deal, huh?  Sign up below!

If you’re loving all the free resources here at the Kitchen Table Classroom but are unsure how they add up to a year long, well rounded art education then I have the solution for you!  I’ve worked so hard on my first e-book, Artists and the Elements.

Study the seven elements of art and connect them with seven artists.   Every resource you need, including pintables is included so you can just open and go!


Thinking so intentionally about your child’s experiences means you’re doing something right.

Take a few minutes and look around.   Read about what our days look like.

 Let me know what you think or if you have questions! How can I help?
