One thing I enjoy almost as much as drawing is sharing my love of art with others. My classes are packed with information and inspiration, and I hope my enthusiasm helps all of my students to find their own creative voice. Classes are held through local adult community education programs. Classes can be one night or multi-week workshops. Check the listings below for upcoming classes (the links will take you to more information, including how to register for a class) or contact me to discuss scheduling a class.
