Educating, sharing the pleasure and challenge of making art with people of all ages, is an integral part of my practice as an artist. I have worked directly with numerous and varied populations from pre-school children to incarcerated teens to college level students to older adults, and I enjoy breaking down the creative process for each group I meet. Designing specific project activities, mentoring, and bringing related art and cultural history anecdotes to the workspace to provide context is a stimulating experience for me, and it feeds my work in the studio. I have served as a consultant to educational institutions, museums and non-profits throughout my entire career. Currently, I serve as lead instructor/curriculum consultant to the Brick x Brick after school program for teens sponsored by the Perez Museum in Miami. Other experience includes: 

Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, FL, ; Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach; Miami-Dade Public Library; Miami Dade College Museum of Art & Design; Lifetime Arts; Legal ArtMiami/Creative Capital; Girls’ Club, Ft. Lauderdale; VSA Arts, Florida; Ohio Arts Council; Wolfsonian Museum-FIU, Miami Beach; Arts4Learning, Miami; Development Associates, Inc.; ArtCenter/South Florida, Miami Beach: New World School of the Arts, Miami, FL; MOCA North Miami, FL;  Abstraction Made Elementary, Cambridge, MA 

I enjoyed the interactions with older adults during a previous Lifetime Arts course I gave. I appreciated their attentiveness and willingness to experiment as they re-discovered and activated new skills and passions  for art making.  Their individual  life experiences and stories enriched the entire group's experience of learning to draw and paint.
