I have 25 years teaching experience at a Blue Ribbon School in Ashburn. I've recently retired to open up and art gallery//scchool in Leesburg with my daughter, Kaeley Boyle. Kaeley is an internationally showing artist with a BFA from Penn State University and an MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, Ma.
We believe that everyone is capable of learning to make Art when instructed properly. Art is not a mystery that only a few are capable of creating. Art is creativity stimulated by imagination and formed with a skilled tool set. “ Creativity is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” Albert Einstein
I enjoy watching the progression my students make and seeing the moments when they realize what they're capable of.
I had Mrs. Boyle as my art teacher from K-8th grade. She is incredible. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about art, the different mediums and applications but she made it just plain fun. SHE IS THE BEST.
