Yes, I've taught art for 25 years to kiddos ages 2-18 and I still love it! Seeing kids eyes light up as they share their new creation absolutely makes my day. While, I have an art education degree - I have found my experience in the classroom to be far more valuable. In fact, this class grew out of a question one of my students asked: "when can we learn about an artist that's alive?" What a powerful question! It took me on a journey away from the very European centered art education that I was familiar with and into a colorful, inspiring world of exciting new artists. 

Side note: I have taught in private schools, public schools, art museums, summer camps, homeschool coops and virtual classrooms. Each setting has its pros and cons. My favorite part of teaching virtually is the front row seat each student has to the demonstrations. The virtual classroom also has fewer behavior problems and practically zero bullying. Yes, I've been teaching exclusively virtually for the past two years and my students' parents tell me their kids love my classes.

About Me

Why yes, I do wear pencils in my hair and sometimes I forget they are there. When I'm planning classes and activities, I often remember what I needed as a creative kid. I craved exploring all the different art supplies with a balance between...
