Welcome to Art! I am Mrs. Layna Lesnau and I teach art at both the Lansing and East Lansing campus. I am so excited to be creating and exploring the world of art with all the students at Cole Academy! This is my 6th year teaching art with Cole. My goal is to provide an authentic experience for all that is energizing, exciting and educational. In art we work with paint, clay, markers, crayons and anything that inspires us!
I have received a B.A. in Fine Arts with a concentration of Photography from College for Creative Studies and a B.A. in Art Education (K-12) with a focus of Photography and a specialization in Museum Studies from Michigan State University. I have just completed my Masters in Educational Technology from Michigan State University.
My husband and I are parents to two daughters, Ada and Fiona. In my spare time I love to do anything creative, watch Disney movies and play with my daughters (tea parties are a favorite!). My family also loves animals; we have two cats, Cosmo and Caly, two guinea pigs, Stevie and Barry, and a fish, Dory.
