About

The Purple Turtle Art Studio’s is owned and operated by LeAnn Hale. LeAnn’s goal is to equip children with the tools of creativity so they can express themselves visually, with confidence.

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.
