My approach to teaching art has always involved learning through practice. I believe that joy and accomplishment in the visual arts are not restricted. I have always felt that talent is an overused word that often puts off more people than it encourages. In my classes I explain a structured approach to the handling of materials, show historical references and concepts and demonstrate the pleasure and pride that comes from hard work. I try to simplify and clarify potentially overwhelming material for all of my students. I remind them that what they are after in their artwork is within their own experience.
I am a firm believer in momentum. Contact me (link)if you have an idea you might like help pursuing or to receive my hill house e-mail about classes and projects that are always developing.
