Abbie Cianfrocco

ABBIE CIANFROCCO has a long history of studying and creating within the artistic realms.  Abbie explores various mediums and still enjoys experimenting with any and all available materials. She enjoys teaching (or co-learning) with children ages 3-17; playing with the wonder of using different mediums and developing ideas into art forms.  Abbie wants her students to connect their imaginations to a purpose so that they can always use that part of their mind for problem solving or simply for fun.
