Classes and Workshops:

I enjoy the dynamic environment of classes and workshops.  It's a pleasure to get together with others and explore new territory in art. There's real joy in seeing each student develop and follow a personal path as they acquire new techniques and integrate new ideas into an individual art practice.

All plans are only as good as the possibilities for completing them. Needless to say, 2020 has been upended at least from now until the end of June.  Stay tuned for mid summer into fall workshops to see if they will go forward.  Meanwhile, make art and be well.  I'll be in touch...
