I taught K-1 afterschool for several years as well as mask-making at Emerson College. More recently I teach art courses through my town's adult education program and art summer camp for 4 & 5 year olds. I am also an author/illustrator who frequently visits schools, teaching kids about creative writing and doing art projects.
