My name is Melissa and I am a stay at home mama to two beautiful babes, Emma, 4 and Grayson, 1. I strongly believe that art should be an essential part of a child's life. I watch my children grow and learn through art everyday. I have always been an artist my entire life and dabbled in pretty much every form, but when I became a mother it was a bit challenging for me to find ways for my children to be involved. After much trial and error I have found that children are born artists with amazing imaginations ready to create. We just need to help them embrace their creative mind.
