ABOUT SUSAN STEIN
Of my many passions in life, my biggest is art. Teaching art, creating art, looking at art. In other words, experiencing art. Everyone can benefit from experiencing art, regardless of whether they are “good at it”. As I teach art I also teach problem solving, brainstorming, inventive thinking, working together, pride, persistence, intuitiveness, hand-eye skills and so much more!
In today’s schools of conformity, children need a way to express themselves, engage their senses, try new things, and feel good about who they are. Our fast-paced, connected world of today requires constant innovation and problem solving. The creative thinkers of today will be the successful, happy people of tomorrow. Making art is therapeutic, reducing stress and improving focus. Through artmaking, even adults can increase their right brain capacity leading to clearer thinking, new ideas and fresh perspectives.
Susan earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis and has over 15 years of teaching experience. She loves nature, travel, museums, reading, learning, music, collecting hopping toys and shopping for art supplies.
