I love to speak to children and adult groups about art, history, and nature. Using a lively approach with pictures, props, and fun activities, I aim to engage everyone’s hearts and hands, making learning fun and weaving in insights about our amazing God. I have spoken in school chapels, women’s groups, teacher conferences, homeschooling groups, and in classrooms.


Check out some of the following workshops and contact me if you’d be interested in my visiting your group either virtually or in person. I can also customize talks to your group’s particular needs, and my fees are very reasonable.

Mrs. O’Neill taught church history at my church. Her lessons were… engaging and illustrated with works of art. I left inspired… and amazed at the sovereignty of God and His protection and preservation of His church throughout the ages…. Mrs. O’Neill’s knowledge of art history makes her an outstanding teacher and guide to the story of God’s ways with His people throughout the centuries…. Ann, Arlington, TX

It is my pleasure to recommend Kathy O’Neill.… we had the great blessing to have several of our children learn from her. She teaches art in a way that makes it fun for the student while they are learning solid and accurate history as well as making beautiful art and learning new things! Beth, Edmond, OK
