[when you truly dig what you do.] LAINA MELIArt DirectorFor three decades, Laina Meli has worked in the design world, from print to products, from Harvard to Disney. Born into a family of artists, she found the emerging digital tools at the start of the '90's to be a natural boon to the traditional graphic-arts training she had growing up with her commercial/fine artist parents. While cutting her teeth at design departments in the print-houses in Boston, MA, where she grew up, Laina garnered a robust professional portfolio before the age 22. She was advised by the Dean at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, to enroll in a fourth year-final portfolio class. From there, she was recruited directly into the world of top-talent Agencies and has not stopped illustrating, designing, and making ideas into reality since.OUR UNSHAKABLEFOCUS ON GIVING BACK. A CHANCE AT ART[opportunity through art immersion.]Not giving up on our own careers as Artists teaches us to understand perseverance in the face of challenges. For some, most notably the youngest among us, those challenges start with a lack of basic things like a toothbrush or even the loving, guiding hand of a familiar relative. We provide our specially designed art learning tools to children in need through partnerships with local agencies. Each art-kit has a full class of activities & exposure to Immersion Art Learning inside, to support with the most critical skills between ages 4 - 7.Giving for the sake of learning to children & families who lack access to immersion-style, hands on learning experiences in the Arts is behind what we offer in our retail experience. By purchasing any of our products, you are helping us give our Class-in-a-Pack© Art Kits to The Rainbow Room, operated by Partnerships for Children in Austin, a non-profit agency that works to provide vital supplies for children in transition and foster care. From the whole family at The WellBeeTree Co, Thank you for choosing our products.- Laina Meli, Art Director
