I am teaching a variety of classes and workshops at the Northville Art House (215 W Cady St, Northville, MI 48167 – Classes | Northville Art House). Please join us, if you can. If this place and these times are not convenient for you, please contact me. I can find a place and time just right for helping you get started for the first time or get re-started in a creative practice. I can’t wait for that opportunity!
My philosophy on teaching art is to focus primarily on the enjoyment aspects while gently introducing the technical and academic. Hence, in creating a passion for the subject matter, the quest for knowledge also becomes enjoyable.
