My name is Andrea. I am a homeschooling mom of 2 children. I have enjoyed teaching them since they were born. I follow their interests, allowing them to learn what interest them most. I self taught myself drawing and painting techniques, I have been drawing since I was 5 years old and I have been painting for 15 years. I have had great teachers to learn painting techniques from. My favourite watercolour teacher was Moira Clark from Toronto. I have also taken a diploma art course at Startford Career Institute - under the guiding wings of Linda Drewry - to further my skills in several other media, such as acrylic, pastel, oil, charcoal, pencil and watercolour.
I love all other handcraft techniques. I have been knitting and crocheting since I was a child. I learned basic crocheting from my mother when I was 7 years old. Once I could read I taught myself more stitches and experimented with patterns. I learned knitting in school when I was 13 years old. I learned to sew when I was 18. My hobby is scrap booking which I started when my babies were born. My kids inspire me to be the best person and teacher I can be while we develop their art. Our house is decorated with their art work.
