|Hi! I'm Emily McEneely, art educator and advocate for the arts in everyone's life! My own artistic journey began, of course, as a child. Art was always my favorite activity although I wasn't necessarily big on traditional skills. I just liked to make stuff! That love for "making" led me to attend Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY where I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts. So in the end, I learned plenty of traditional skills! I then pursued opportunities in art education including teaching various grade levels in YMCA afterschool programs and summer camps. About a year later I took a position in a public elementary school cementing my passion for art education. I've been inspired countless times by the internet based art teacher community and find myself eager to give back. Whether it's with another teacher in my school(s) or an idea shared between art teachers, I am excited by collaboration. The end goal always being to create vibrant, engaging lessons that spark the creative fire in my students.
