MJ ProfileGreetings!  MJ is my name and making stuff is my game.

What happens when art making intersects with mindfulness?
We recognize our creative habits and those of others around us. We accept and allow them to simply be what they are.
And we investigate them with kindness.

Art Engine is an archive of creative experiences for children with a focus on how language and environment has the power to shut us down from taking risks or open our mind up to endless opportunity.
How we communicate with our students and each other influences our ability to build self-efficacy and develop our creative potential. The words we choose and the tone we use have the ability to create a welcoming environment where all artists and ideas are valued and celebrated. At Art Engine, I un-pack what inclusive educators do and say and how they curate a learning space rooted in belonging.

I am so glad you are visiting Art Engine and I hope you find my posts meaningful. If you are curious about my personal art practice, view this image gallery. If you like what you see and are interested in purchasing my art posters, encouraging stickers and buttons, or our newest creation: wrapping paper, visit my ArtEngine Etsy Shop.
