I have taught as a teaching artist and art tutor for over 10 years, working with ages preschool - adult. I currently teach in 2 elementary schools as the art teacher for TK - 5th grade. I also love engaging my 4 year old in artmaking at home!
I focus on the process of making art. Students explore a variety of artistic media, gaining skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and sculpture. They experiment with materials and techniques and are inspired by contemporary artists. I work hard to build up students as artists, to encourage them to build their creativity, be an observer, understand how to communicate with images, and most of all to be engaged in the act of creating. I incorporate choice into my classrooms and am working my way towards TAB as a teaching and learning methodology.

I received my BA in Studio Art & Geography from Middlebury College and my MFA in Visual Arts from Washington University in St. Louis. I primarily focused on printmaking.
I love teaching art and am excited to share some of my successful lessons here!
