I am a practicing artist, teacher and mom who has a passion for nurturing the creative spirit that exists in every child....the spirit of exploration, playfulness, curiosity, expressivity and inquiry. Ultimately, I believe that this spirit leads the child to develop independence, flexibility, confidence, persistence, and the ability to find many solutions to a problem.
My art classes are designed to encourage students to awaken and expand their creative spirit and imagination, to express themselves and to have fun! They will be introduced to, and experiment with, a variety of materials including watercolors, pastel, charcoal, pen and ink, collage, acrylic paints and more. The work of artists past and present will be introduced and discussed.
Classes are tailored to the students in the class. I have taught all levels, from beginner to advanced, ages 3 to 73, so students can expect to work at the level that is right for them. Students will have the opportunity to build their observational skills and work on techniques used by artists to create the illusion of space and volume on a flat surface. In other words, to make something look real! They will also have a chance to work outdoors in my beautiful yard as weather permits!
I have been teaching art to students of all ages for three decades and I hold an EdM from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a focus on The Arts in Education. I also hold an MAT degree from Tufts/School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I hope to meet your young artist soon!
