Ep. 56: Jean Van’t Hul Of The Artful Parent

This week I’m excited to chat with Jean Van’t Hul, The Artful Parent. I find Jean’s books and blog so inspiring in terms of embracing art and creativity with my kids. If you’re looking for simple ways to bring art into your childrens’ lives and break up long days at home, this episode is for you!

Jean Van’t Hul helps parents, caregivers and teachers share art with the kids in their lives through her blog, The Artful Parent, her books, art classes, online courses and the Kids Art Club. A graduate of Wellesley college with a major in art history and studio art, she worked in various art and nonprofit fields before having kids and becoming passionate about children’s creativity. Jean is the author of the Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life With Art and Creativity and The Artful Year: Celebrating the Seasons & Holidays With Crafts and Recipes. She lives with her family in the mountains of western North Carolina.
