Danielle Gustavson

Danielle is often considered Ms. Fizzle of the art room. She believes in getting messy and making mistakes, and encourages each individual’s process of making art, wherever it may take them.

Danielle believes art education is about fostering creative thinking skills and supporting healthy emotional development of a child. For Danielle, the art making process is essential to develop a child’s understanding of themselves and the world around them. Creating art with Danielle is all about fun in the exploration process. In her classroom, students feel safe to express themselves freely and to be courageous enough to try new art techniques and ideas.
