Laura Leigh is the afterschool coordinator. 

Laura Leigh is a fine artist, singer-songwriter and maker of organic watercolor paints based in New Paltz, NY. Laura’s paintings are a blend of abstraction and landscape, and her music echoes old time Appalachian music with a big love for storytelling. After completing her BFA in Painting and Drawing from SUNY New Paltz in 2014, she has completed several artist’s residency programs, many in national parks. Laura has created her own earth pigment library made from Ochre minerals and clay from around the country, and now spends most of her time teaching online and in person classes while also touring with her band. She believes that painting and music are therapeutic and wants to help heal and connect people through creative expression.
