Join us for a collaborative art project with Meryl Taylor. Currently she is teaching drop in art classes at Whitehall Academy in south LA. Before moving to Los Angeles she was an assistant teacher at the Seattle Academy of Fine Art and taught Mommy & Me art classes. After moving to LA she worked as a child enrichment facilitator to young children through creativity and play. She is currently in her 6th year volunteering as a bookreader in the LA public elementary schools.
