My name is Jean Van't Hul and I will be your friend and guide in the ART SPOT Kids' Art Club. My goal is to help KIDS to do easy and fun art activities. And to help parents foster creativity at home.
As the founder of The Artful Parent blog and the author of two books, I have years of experience making art and creativity easy and fun for families. I will give you the tools, info, and inspiration to help you connect through creativity and encourage experimentation as you do fun art activities at home.
I'm a mother to two children, ages 8 and 13, and live in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina in the United States. I have a degree in art history and studio art from Wellesley College, and years of working in arts organizations, but it wasn't until I became a parent that the pure potential of art and creativity gelled in my mind.
I am passionate about helping children reach their creative potential and I look forward to helping you create a strong creative foundation for your family!
