Hi! My name is Diane Mangum and I am a Mom who loves all things creative. I have taught preschool/art for 13 years! A friend recently shared a quote from her childhood journal..."I don't want Diane to come over to color anymore. She wastes too much paper." Haha! Give me stacks of paper or a clean canvas, sets of markers, pastels, or paints, some scissors and glue and I can make you something pretty! My favorite piece of art to teach kids is "Girl with a Pearl Earring" by Johannes Vermeer - hence, the name of my blog.
