Amanda Highley Gallegos

Director of Wonderland Workshops

Amanda Highley Gallegos is the dynamic director of Wonderland Workshops, where she also leads camps, directs parties, and paints murals. With 25 years of experience in creating, teaching, and exploring art, Amanda's journey began at age 15 when she first started selling her artwork. Since then, art has remained a constant presence in her life, whether through professional endeavors or personal studio experimentation.

A significant highlight of Amanda's artistic career is her work with children of all ages. In 2003, encouraged by friends, she started teaching summer art camps. Through word-of-mouth, these workshops have flourished, growing in popularity and creativity each year. In response to the declining emphasis on art in schools, Amanda's camps offer a vital creative outlet for children, exposing them to a wide range of artistic disciplines, including photography, fine art, dance, and music. The summer art camps provide enriching experiences for kids of all ages, nurturing their creativity and passion for the arts.
