Out and About In the Community

I've got an ongoing schedule of classes, events, and shows that vary by season. To keep in touch with what's happening, check out my Facebook business page, which you can find on Facebook by entering "creativeanimalinde" in the search function. I'll admit, I get so busy that I don't always update my events here -- but I do try and post things on Facebook!

Inspiring Interest in Art and Nature
Following a presentation to a 5th grade class at Brandywine Springs Elementary School this past spring, I received a wonderful group of thank you notes. All were spectacularly illustrated with pictures of animals and ecosystems (which had been part of my program's theme). You never know what impact you may have on others and I thank these kids for their interest!
