I believe that everyone is capable of making art. As a teacher I introduce materials, demonstrate their uses and encourage experimentation. I plan lessons to fit each group's specific situation; make sure the experience is positive and fun. I love to teach sculpture, painting, printmaking, bookmaking and drawing at all levels. I have worked with students of all ages and combined age groups. In the case of special needs I adapt instruction to the students abilities.
