Meet Your Storyteller

Carmen Gripper is a woman who is passionate about visual & performing arts, as well as science. She is the founder of Growing Up Art Virtual Preschool that affords preschool scholars the opportunity to explore the elements of art and principles of design during S.T.E.M. based art lessons. Through art-focused S.T.E.M, Growing Up Art encourages children to participate in activities that will develop vital skills during early development.

Carmen has earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Graduate Certification in Big Data & Business Analytics. She has merged her love of the arts with sciences to offer a unique program to the youngest members of our community in hopes that it will empower them with the skills needed to succeed in any arena.


WHY AM I SO PASSIONATE ABOUT PRESCHOOL ART?

Hi, I'm Mrs. Carmen. I’m a homeschool mom of 2 kiddos, 4-year old Addisen and 8-year old Connor. I'm also a Children's Church teacher of 4 years. My lessons have always been art-focused! Over the years, I have seen how vital early art education is to child development. Art has been such a blessing in my life! It has enabled me to understand concepts and take unique approaches to learning from grade school through graduate school. I have embarked on this journey to offer a preschool that is the heart of creative thinking and expression, encouraging our children to nurture their passion for art, use their imaginations to be resourceful, bring their individuality into a collective group, and allow exploration of the arts to guide them through the Process of Self-Discovery.
