How Art Smarts started

I was born and raised in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey. After receiving a BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art, I furthered my education at the San Francisco Art Institute and also San Diego City College. When our children reached school age, I was the Art Docent Coordinator at their school, Murray Manor Elementary, for 10 years. That's where I discovered the need for art to be put back into the schools and where Art Smarts began its first after school program.
