Description

Class Experience

This class is for aspiring artists who aren't afraid of getting a little messy and to express themselves creatively through art making.   Students will create original works of art that reflect their feelings and unique individuality.

Overall, participating in this class, students will have improved their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, enhanced focus, visual and spatial relationship skills and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.  Art making is therapeutic, relaxing and a smart option for navigating uncertain times.   No drawing experience required; beginners welcome!

Creating original art will build confidence, nurture innate creativity and spark right-brain activity, thus enhancing academic performance.  All wonderful outcomes from a simple single art classes with me!
I am offering this class because I love art making, and have an art studio in my home where I make art big and small, almost every day. My own unique style of art making incorporates mixed media, it's awesome.  I love creating something beautiful that didn’t exist ever before!  I have been making art since I was three-years old and grew up in a home environment where creativity was a way of life.  

I’ve always been creative and interested in colors, textures, textiles, fashion design and traveling the globe appreciating diverse cultures.  I am inspired by nature, the cosmos and color most of all!  To me, making art, expressing myself creatively and teaching others to do that, are as natural as breathing.  Kids of all ages love my inspired, relaxed and energetic style of teaching art.  I have been teaching art in formal settings for over 15 years.

I look forward to having the opportunity to meet and create art together.
