I have over 12 years of experience teaching and enjoy working with artists of all ages and levels of experience.
It is my belief that an educator's mission is to make school enjoyable, exciting, and enlightening--if students look forward to attending school, they will learn. Art is the perfect arena for demonstrating this philosophy.
