Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Hendershott with her niece and nephews on vacation last summer.

I love to Kayak! I love to teach art, garden, and make art work myself. 

I have an Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The University of Pennsylvania and a Masters Degree from The University of The Arts, both in Philadelphia. As part of my art education I spent a year living in Italy. I continue to take classes and workshops to learn new things and perfect my skills as an artist. As a practicing artist in addition to teaching art at NPE I have taught adult and childrens classes at a local clay studio in Philadelphia.

Art is all about us and all around us. I think it is important to teach my students how to see it and how to make it! Children are natural artists and natural explorers with art materials.
