In this class, students get to choose their subject while learning advanced drawing techniques

Class Experience

  • Students will be able to create realistic drawings which require more complex techniques involving proper proportion, likeness accuracy, and shading with the intent of defining three- dimensional form.
I am a lifelong, self- taught artist, beginning at a very young age. I received 3 years of advanced art instruction in secondary school. My experience includes selling my work in an art gallery which I owned and operated. I continue to be privately commissioned and give pieces as gifts. Prior to retiring from working in special education, I applied my skills in the form of art therapy for behaviorally challenged children in the classroom setting.
