Hi, my name is Amanda Heyn, and I’m an art educator from Madison, Wisconsin. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I spent 5 years in the classroom teaching art at the elementary level. I loved watching my students grow into a community of creative problem-solvers.
I love working with the AOE Writing Team to bring the best stories from the world of art ed to the Online Magazine. When I’m not busy writing, editing, or scouting new stories, I love to bake, spend time with my family, and practice yoga. I look forward to growing with and learning from you and all of our readers!
