Doodles Academy comprises a group of artists and educators who believe that regular exposure to art is crucial in order for the next generation to develop into reflective and adaptable adults.
Our Mission is to expand children’s access to high-quality visual arts education.

Founder & Executive Director
Founder Tempest NeuCollins received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Both as a teaching artist and, later, a K-5 art teacher, she became frustrated that so much art education is incredibly costly and inefficient, such as private classes, or overcrowded with little opportunity for differentiation. She became determined to find a way to offer an affordable, open-ended curriculum that would bring a choice-based art education to more students.
