About Your Teacher: 

Erin DeThomas has a Masters in Elementary Education, and spent more than a handful of wonderful years in the classroom. She opened Makers in 2018 because she wanted to offer the community’s youngest children an opportunity to engage in meaningful and developmentally appropriate art experiences.

ABOUT MAKERS: At Makers, we practice process art. We create with an attitude of play and discovery, and focus more on the experience than the outcome. We like to introduce children to a variety of art materials, tools and techniques to encourage exploration, experimentation and confidence.
