Owner & Designer of ARTventurous Animals
Hi! I’m Abbey Allen. I teach kids to love academics through art, animals, travel, and step-by-step instruction.
I truly believe art is for EVERYONE, not just the natural artist. The scientist, nature-lover, athlete, wanna-be vet, and gamer can all find fun and a sense of accomplishment in art. That’s why I’ve made my brand ARTventurous Animals!
My classes and resources are engaging, full of animals and adventure, and uncomplicated 🎨 I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and have taught in a brick-and-mortar classroom for 4 years. But even after substituting, teaching 3rd grade, teaching Kindergarten, and teaching English in Thailand, being an online art teacher has been my favorite!
I believe children should be guided to be their best self. This means creating extra tasks for gifted students, challenging the average, and reaching out and individually assisting the lower students. I also believe that art is for everyone! Anyone can draw, anyone can create, anyone can imagine.
A fun fact about me is that I have lived in Bangkok, Thailand! I have also been to 11 countries on 3 different continents. The most incredible was probably the United Arab Emirates.
My husband and I just had our beautiful son, Liam James, on July 4th. He’s the reason I’ve chosen to be an online teacher and stay-at-home mom. If you met him, you would know why I can’t bring myself to leave him all day!
Oh, and we have a cat named Leo. He’s pretty great, too!
