When a teacher falls in love with an artist, they live in a place called Easel Town… Paul and Lisa Miller have been combining their talents for over 12 years now as they raise their 3 boys and spread their love of the arts and teaching with the Memphis community.

They built Easel Town with the purpose of providing unique, high quality fine art instruction for children in an environment that encourages authentic creativity born through problem solving and a willingness to risk mistakes. Their goal is to cultivate a community where the experiences and skills gained through the art process are viewed as important tools for future successes.  The student centered approach of their classes allows art to be a true expression of the childhood imagination.

Over the years, Easel Town expanded to tap into Lisa’s area of expertise as well by offering academic support for children through private tutoring. Easel Town understands the integral  role art can play in improving problem solving, critical thinking and reasoning skills in children. Their goal is to create classes that challenge and appeal to children while providing them with a meaningful experience that creates a life long appreciation of the arts and learning. Furthermore, Easel Town is eager to come alongside parents and partner with them to help their children achieve success.
