Each lesson includes Art History and the language of Art because I believe it is all connected and important to enhancing the art experience.

My passion is to enable a student to create and produce art. I love the look on their face when they produce something that they are proud of. I call it the aha moment.

  • Students are responsible for a Sketchbook (30 – 50 pages).
  • Each in-person student will create a portfolio. This makes it easier to  identify and they will be taking it home to practice techniques.
    • Project and Specialized materials will be supplied by me, the teacher.
  • For Remote lessons, I will supply a list of materials to be purchased by the student a head of time.

For Home schooled students – printout of grade is available if needed.

* Each student must bring sketchbook to each lesson. Practice drawings and theory will kept for each project.
