Welcome, I'm so excited to finally share my creations at The Art Dream, it's been quite a journey and I'm glad to be getting my work onto a website. My name is John Lavelle and I am a self taught artist. Drawing, painting and crafting has always been in my blood and I love to share what I do with others.
For the past few years I've worked with children with autism, I was the first art teacher hired by the school and it gave me the incredible freedom to create a curriculum and art projects that were fun, creative, and most of all do-able for my students. I was so lucky to be able to create activities that made the students and me happy.
I later took the opportunity to move on in my career and switch over to elementary school. My oh my are children these days energetic! Here the students are so eager and excited for art and it's my pleasure to introduce exciting art projects for them, though quite a challenge I do find it important that they experience a well rounded curriculum all while staying fresh, current and trendy.
My goal with The Art Dream is to inspire creativity and share my love of art making with artists, teachers and parents.
