I have a BFA in painting and drawing. I am a recently retired k-8 art teacher in Phoenix, AZ.
Teaching Style: In my experience, open-ended projects are the most effective. After presenting a 5-minute lessons and reviewing the steps, the students are free to create!

My lesson plans reflect my lifelong love of art. I strive to make each art lesson unique and fun for students. Using open-ended art activities, students develop their self-esteem and creative confidence. I want your students to have a good experience when you use my lessons.
