One of my favorite parts of being an artist is helping others find the inner creative in themselves. So, I offer a range of classes from one-on-one instruction to small groups to full-sized classes. I teach all ability levels from beginner to fellow masters that focus on specific tecnhniques or complete projects. My students always enjoy the social and creative atmosphere my classes offer and often come with family and friends. Look below for my upcoming classes or contact me to schedule something specific.
