Instructor: Bella Legault

I love to be creative—whether it's creating mixed media artwork, cards, re-purposing clothes, or piecing together a new craft. I've been told that my passion, enthusiasm, and energy are contagious! I believe that anyone can be creative in their own way. It's the process of being creative that feeds my soul—not just the final product—and that's exactly what I want to share with others through Art À La Carte.  Fun and Playful Arts & Crafts Parties in your home or location check out Bellas web-site www.artalacartebella.com to contact Bella 802.324.2648
