ABOUT THE CAMP: "Making art just makes me feel better..." -My child.

Art & storytime have helped my girls get through this period. School is out soon and I want to continue to help them as well as others feel these benefits. I will be hosting a donation-based art & storytime camp delivered via ZOOM that is designed with arts-focused children in mind.

Each of the projects I'm including in this 1 hr /day week camp are intended to teach or remind children of an art skill or activity that they can go to when they get stressed, sad, or want a little quiet time. Artmaking can be a friend for life.

On top of the art making, I will pair these fun process-based art activities with an engaging and on-theme audio book- my children & I find it a great way to make!


  • 10:25 - 10:30:  Log In- ART Challenge will be displayed for students while they wait for camp to begin(microphones off, please). 
  • ~10:30 - 10:40 Positive, quick greetings & intro to today's process art lesson
  • All questions are clarified.
  • ~10:40 - 11:20 Art making while listening to Audiobook : A Pup Called Trouble by Bobbie Pyron
  • 11:30 on- Friends can stay later to share their art with me!


  • All art supplies are chosen so that your child can continue making & exploring even after the class is over. I hope to teach skills as well as lead art projects. The point is PROCESS- not necessarily PRODUCT- though a nice product will often come of it as well!
  • For those who are local to Austin, feel free to reach out to borrow/ check out art supplies.

Brimming with curiosity,Trouble can’t wait to explore the world beyond Singing Creek. So one morning the coyote pup stows away in the back of a truck and ends up lost in the heart of New York City. While Trouble misses his siblings, he quickly makes friends in Central Park’s Ramble: a prankster crow, a timid opossum, and a poetic poodle.

Before long, he goes from howling for home to wondering if he could make a life in the city forever. But when word gets out that a coyote is running wild on city streets, Trouble must choose between the risks of being caught and the dangers of a long journey home.

Inspired by true stories, this accessible read from the award-winning author of A Dog’s Way Home will resonate with anyone who’s ever felt torn between the longing for adventure and the call of home. An appendix with real accounts of wild animals trapped in the city adds to the fun!
