I hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I taught digital art to undergraduate pre-service art teachers as an adjust professor at VCU and as a public high school teacher; now I enjoy teaching digital art to students online.  I love teaching drawing, painting, sculpture and Photoshop to learners of all ages. I've been teaching for 20+ years and running my own piano studio for 10+ years. There's a special place in my heart for creative works and the artists that make them, especially fantasy stories and narrative artworks, comics and graphic novels.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
💡   Please log into the Outschool classroom on the same device as your art app and give permission for zoom to control your device remotely if possible. If you prefer using a mobile device to make your art, I recommend logging into the Outschool meeting TWICE: one log-in should be the mobile device where you are creating your art and the second should be a device with a video camera facing the student so we can better communicate. To prevent audio feedback, disable the audio on one device.   

💻  Canva is a free (with paid options) online software with many options for creating graphics. Most of our work can be completed using only canva. Install the app at canva.com . Canva requires all account holders to be aged 13 or older – parents will need to create an account for students aged under 13 years. It is recommended that all students log in with a parent account. This course uses the free version of Canva, you do not need to upgrade to a paid subscription. Be sure you are logged into an active account before class begins. 

💻  Photopea.com is free online software that works nearly exactly like Adobe Photoshop and is great for students using a laptop. Students who have not purchased and installed Photoshop on their computer may opt to use Photopea instead if they have a strong internet connection. We will use Photopea to capture and crop screenshot images. Find it at https://www.photopea.com
