The Purple Turtle Art Studio’s is owned and operated by Le Hale. Le’s goal is to create a sense of adventure through a conglomeration of visual art experiences.

I have a love for children and a passion for art and I aspire to help lead each one down their personal creative path.

I opened the Purple Turtle in the fall of 2000 and have been enjoying it ever since. Before the Turtle I taught the visual arts at Johnson Elementary School for five years. Previous to Johnson I worked for many summer art programs: Girl Scout Camp, Brazos Valley Art’s Council and Boy’s and Girl’s Club of the Brazos Valley . I also taught for two years at Art’s for Everyone, a non-profit program and later served on its board of directors.
