Teaches: Pre-K Art; Children's Mixed Media
Linda attended Central Connecticut State University, where she pursued a BS, MS and Sixth Year, in Elementary Education and Art. She taught second, third and sixth grade prior to joining Artsplace in 2012. Linda teaches Art Start, seven week classes, for Pre-K students, along with day workshops throughout the year, and summer workshops for 5-8 year olds. These courses provide opportunities for budding artists to explore different mediums, and to experience the process of art. She also participates in ArtsDay, an annual family event, held at Cheshire Academy.
