Availability for Workshops

From time to time I really enjoy teaching workshops. A long time ago, when I lived in Chicago, I would teach workshops at Right Brain Studio in Oak Park, IL. There I mentored youth with a cartooning class, and a sewing class. Since moving to Vermont I have also collaborated with the Chester Community Art Garden, the Winhall Community Art Center, and The Gallery at the Vault in Springfield to offer one-time workshops.

I enjoy working with all ages. My teaching method is pretty hands off and I focus on fostering creativity, and helping students unlock their individual styles. If you, or a family member, could benefit from exploring your creative side I provide the materials, tools and encouragement to experiment with sloshing paint around. We can set up private, or semi-private group classes at my studio (maximum of four people). One time workshops, or reoccurring classes are possible.

In a pet portrait class students learn how to create a fun portrait of their favorite friend with gouache, in their own style.
