Endorsed to teach Art K-12 and have taught Art for 37 years. I have a Master's plus 45 graduate hours and have also taught at the college level.
With little people, teaching technique and content is a must so that they can use that art knowledge to explore creatively on their own. Giving basic guidelines to follow and asking students to show me something I have NEVER seen before is the motivation for students. And consequently, I get absolutely fabulous art I have never seen before!

After 37 years of teaching art, I will be retiring. My first love is and will always be teaching others to enjoy art that they create themselves. My one page lesson plans will give you the basics to create a quality piece of artwork with students, allowing you to change or enhance the lesson with different materials or media.
