Episode #28: Amie Plumley and Jean Van’t Hul

August 18th, 2014

Amie Plumley is the co-author of Sewing School and Sewing School 2. Both books are excellent resources for teaching children to sew. Jean Van't Hul is the author of the blog and book, The Artful Parent. She is passionate about helping people find inspiration and encouragement in making art with children, whether at home or in the classroom. In this episode of the podcast we talk about creating open-ended projects, controlling the mess, helping everyone feel comfortable being creative, and dealing with frustration and self-doubt among young artists. Amie, Jean and I also recommend our favorite art supplies and creative toys for children and adults.
