Donna studied Interior Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn,NY. While raising her large family she discovered that her greatest love is creating art with children. For over 20 years she has been privileged to teach art to both children and adults in various venues including Ventura County Unified School District’s Artist in Residence program, LA Valley College Extension Program and most recently for the City of Ventura Cultural Affairs Department. From 2002-2010 she designed curriculum and taught exclusively for the San Fernando Valley based Arts in Education Aid Council, sharing her love of artmaking with K-5 students at Van Alden and Melvin Avenue Elementary schools in Reseda and Maurice Sendak Elementary in North Hollywood. Donna feels there is no more rewarding job in the world than bringing art to young children!
