TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I served as a volunteer art docent for several years before becoming my school's Professional Expert in Visual Arts. I taught twenty weekly K-5 classes and conducted an after-school Art Enrichment program as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to find projects and materials that bring out the best in children’s art. Making them overlap school curriculum and art history as much as possible is my passion.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I first earned my B.F.A. at Minneapolis College of Arts and Design, and then enjoyed a 20-year career in graphic design. When my son entered kindergarten, my career path took a turn. Our local elementary school had no art program and that was all the inspiration I needed to take up a new cause.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Owner / Creator of Art Projects for Kids.org blog since 1997. With over 1300 classroom-tested art projects posted, I’m happy to pass on my ideas and experiences to all who would like to add a little more creativity to their lives.
