BIO

Hi! My name is Tracy Barton and I have been with EIAA for ten years. I have really enjoyed working with children and helping them explore their creative sides. We have worked with many different mediums such as, clay, paper, watercolor, acrylic, oil pastels, wire, foil, fabric and jewelry making. We have also painted murals that hang in two different school gyms.
