Hi, I’m Spramani

I’m an artist, homeschool mom, art teacher, and art studio owner. 

When I decided to teach art to children over twenty years ago I struggled to find any art curriculum to follow that was appropriate for children. 

Today, I’ve taught tens of thousands children through my traveling art studio attending some of the largest education conferences for different pedagogies, and homeschooling organizations nationally.

I became really good at teaching children which has led me to write 7 art education books, and now develop art curriculum for schools around the world.

I now travel internationally and train teacher’s my science art method, and  how to bring art literacy into their classrooms.

 I’ve spent thousands of hours perfecting art lessons for children of all ages. 

Now I want to help you teach your students art lessons with my proven art method.
