Hi! I'm Amy. I'm an artist, an Educator, and a mother. This three-part recipe is at the very core of Mill Studio Arts.
My Mission is to bring art to life, for children and young adults in our community and throughout Southern Maine, in a way that helps them grow and flourish through curiosity and creativity.
My personal background in the arts started at Maine College of Art where I received a BFA with a concentration in sculpture. I went on to earn my teaching certificate for K-12 Art Education from the University of New England and a Master's degree in K-12 Art Education from Lesley University. I have been teaching art in and outside of public schools for the past seventeen years. I couldn't dream of doing anything else and cherish every day in the studio.
My lessons start for children as young as three years old and go up to fifteen. I also offer pop up adult workshops as my schedule allows. Immense care and attention goes into the development of each lesson that I create. Every age and stage of the artists is considered and respected in my highly individualized approach. I believe that children learn and communicate best when they can be immersed in a meaningful process of making. At Mill Studio Arts children explore, connect and create works of art that are just as unique and beautiful and they are.
