    Wendy Meades

    I live in Vancouver Canada and I have been an artist for over 20 years. I have had the honour of running successful art classes for kids out of my art studio as well as in classrooms around Canada. I believe in encouraging creativity in children and I love to create art lessons that increase their confidence and their self-esteem. I am also an occupational therapist and I love adapting art projects for all levels and using fine motor skill tricks to facilitate art. I am so excited to create with you and your family!
