Let's Make Art
What Makes My Instruction Unique?
Many art classes teach only technical skills. Other art classes teach you how to copy the teacher.
My art classes provide technical instruction too; but you'll also be guided to to find your own voice--your personal way of making art that is a unique expression and celebration of you and the things you care about.
I am a holistic art educator. I place an emphasis on the engaging the whole person-- heart, head and hands.
I believe that art derived from your own inner and outer life will likely be more meaningful to you.
WorldClass Art Class is your space to slow down, enjoy yourself, be creative, try new things, address fears, sharpen your skills, and have fun. All this with sequential learning experiences that help you grow.
This entire workshop could be done with only pencil and paper; the possibilities are endless. But I will be providing instruction on other drawing media as well, including colored pencils and ink.
I've taught art to thousands of students of all ages for over 40 years. I'm an artist who works in many varied media--traditional and digital. I'm also the illustrator and book designer of the Norbert picture book series. I have Bachelor and Master of Fine Art degrees in Painting and a Ph.d. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Art Education. And I'm a licensed art educator.
Creative work that strives to bring out what is best and beautiful of the human spirit may just help make the world a kinder, more compassionate place.
My art classroom used to have four walls with a limited number of students. Now, I welcome the world into my art class. And I invite you to expand your world in beautiful ways.
That's what WorldClass Art Class is about.
Enrollment is limited.
