Charlotte Lyons

VAE Teaching Artist

Charlotte Lyons is a VAE Teaching Artist at the Village School. She teaches, designs and makes things to love. Still inspired by the humble simplicity of traditional art and craft and the inventive use of repurposed materials, Ms. Lyons’ work in and out of the classroom centers on color, pattern and playful experiments. She is the author of 10 books on creative life and the popular blog, House Wren Studio. Born and educated in St. Louis, Ms. Lyons raised three artistic daughters in Oak Park, IL, and Tarrytown, NY. She lives in the heart of North Bennington.




Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
