About the author:
Marilee Donivan is an award-winning teacher and artist. She has received national recognition
for her creative classroom teaching, and her watercolors and oil paintings hang in professional buildings and private collections across the country.
As an elementary teacher, Marilee delighted in her students' love of learning, and fearless,
enthusiastic approach to art. She saw, first-hand, how the arts positively affect students' learning in all subjects. Her vision is to help learners of all ages to discover their own creativity; become confident in their own uniqueness; and most of all, enjoy expressing themselves through artful colors, lines, and compositions.
Her painting lessons encourage persons of all ages and abilities to enjoy the fun and excitement of creating something that is unique to their own experiences and impressions.
"You Can Do It! ART" watercolor lessons are also being used in assisted living, nursing
homes, and rehab facilities, and are contributing to residents' sense of well-being and
accomplishment as they take pride in their art and express themselves in new ways. Helping Alzheimer's/dementia sufferers and their caregivers is especially rewarding to her, as new aspects of brain functioning and positive changes in emotions and behaviors become activated through the watercolor program.
Her goal is to help enrich life experiences for young and old through creative art, by providing pertinent information, rewarding art instruction, and easily attainable, affordable art supplies.
Marilee has a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northwest
Nazarene University with particular interest in multiple learning styles. She is a member of
