About Area Arts

Area Arts is a local mobile - arts organization led by Vandy Leigh. Vandy has a Masters of Education degree in Creative Arts in Learning, Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley University in Boston. She teaches students of all ages from pre-school through all of adulthood.  She is passionate about teaching pre-teens and teens. Vandy says, "Middle and High School students are the perfect art students.  They are curious and  want to learn new things, but once they learn the "right way" they aren't afraid to push the limits and take their art to whole new levels."  In addition to visual arts Vandy is a storyteller.  See her work in the Storytelling section of this site.

Our Vision

  • We support everyone in the exploration of their creative potential, from the excited and curious to the hesitant or terrified.
  • The purpose of art education is not simply to educate artists but to nurture creative thinkers and innovative members of society, of all ages, across all disciplines.                ~Vandy Leigh
