Art is expression, and many LGBTQ+ kids need to find that special, safe place where they can relax, open up, chat, and be creative without judgement.

I'm experienced professional craft project designer, classroom volunteer, community leader, state park docent, summer school instructor, and mom.

As this is a crafts class, there will sometimes be a need for small hand tools such as a drill, utility knife, hammer, scissors, etc.
