My name is Anna Villachica. I am an artist, a mom and a teacher. I love animals, nature and gardening. I decided to become an artist when I was eight years old. I began my artistic journey drawing animals. Later, I moved into painting, sculpture and have just kept on learning all kinds of different art forms. Most recently, I have learned how to do encaustic and welding.
I became an art teacher to teach kids how to express themselves visually. I like to introduce kids to new materials, new methods and new artists and let them explore. My end goal is to show kids that art is a way you can use to communicate your ideas, thoughts and feelings. I want them to be responsible artists and have a lifelong love of art.
