I'm very happy to be contributing to the JCFamilies blog, as well as offering classes in Newport on Tuesdays! A little bit about me... I'm a professional illustrator and published children's author who has been teaching art to children since my college days at NYU. I specialize in crafting for children aged 3-9 years old, and love encouraging children to enjoy and have fun with art. I have an arts business in Jersey City called, "Lady Lucas", and offer adorable gifts, books and artwork to families in the Jersey City area. You can check it out online here: www.ladylucas.com. Also, if you're interested in seeing my portfolio please visit: www.ashleylucas.com.
Hope to meet you soon! ;) ~Ashley
