My name is Linda but friends and family call me "Lee" and
Art to me is a means of expression and a platform for communication, emotion & inspiration.
Together with my Homeschooling family we really are passionate about uniting children and helping educate & socialise them in either a single class or in Garden School mornings (multiple class program). To fit in with family, work & Life styles.
I have a certificate in Visual and Applied art and work as an Early Childhood Educator. I enjoyed over 12 years as a photographer. My Husband Jason and I are passionate about Nurtured & inspired teaching and discovered this love from having 2 home schooled daughters of our own. We have taught children Art, fitness, swimming, Schooling & cared for children as a profession for over 3 years.
Art is a strong & universal language that we all can understand. A form of communication for a child to help portray their thoughts visually when words can stop or limit their ability to focus, concentrate & learn.
