As a studio artist I am constantly exploring new ideas and learning from doing. I am happy to share what I do and how I create through workshops. Whether you have taken a workshop from me before or new to the medium I am sure you will get something out of these workshops.
Pick a date and tell me what workshop you are interested in. In order for a class to run I need at least 3 participants.
Classes will take place in Brunswick,Maine
I will be teaching at the Maine Art Educators Conference at Haystack in September
I will be happy to share and teach when I get back.
