A Little About Me
Hi! I'm Christine Thornton- art teacher, wife, and mom of two college-aged kids.
I used to be an elementary school art teacher (I have a degree in art education from the University of Illinois). When I became a mom, I quit public school teaching to stay home with our kids. When our youngest started kindergarten in 2005, I opened my own art lessons studio and I’ve been teaching here ever since!
Making art has always been part of my life: drawing, painting, sculpting, making jewelry, you name it. There's nothing quite like creating with your hands and entering the joyful state of focused concentration called "flow". When I can help other people engage in this creative process, it's incredibly rewarding. Teaching art is my favorite creative endeavor of all.
Thanks for visiting my website.
