In this 16-week FLEX class, learners will have the opportunity to explore a different art technique each week.

Class experience

My biggest goal with this class is to increase the confidence and creativity of the learners in the class. 
I am a homeschooling mom of five kids, ranging in age from ten to nineteen. We are diving into our 6th year of homeschool and we love it. I have a passion for both education and creativity and I love combining the two whenever I can. When I'm not teaching (my kids or someone else's), I run a business based purely on creativity and art. 

Traveling (and 8 years of formal classes) gave me a handle on the Spanish language. I have a background in general education from 19 years of combined experience teaching in public and charter school settings, as well as tutoring one on one, ESL, and running various camps and activities. My experience ranges from childcare (infant) age all the way through high school age and includes work with neurodiverse and special needs students, as well as students with mental health issues.

I have a passion for, and educational background in Graphic Art/Design, however, my degrees are AA in Liberal Studies and a BA in General Studies with a concentration in Psychology. I am also certified in TESOL and Art Therapy.
Homework Offered
Each week the expectation will be: 1. Students will watch the provided video to learn how to do that week's project. 2. Students will experiment with the technique and make their own version of the project. 3. Students will share their work and any thoughts they might have about the project in the classroom.
