Artist in Residence

Artist in residence

I offer many different classes in a variety of media. Working with the teacher we can put together an art class that works best for thier class. Each class will include basic art concepts, design ideas and a brief history of the specific artform. I encourage all the students to come up with their own designs making each piece unique.  All of these classes can be tied to a specific curriculum.




ARTIST IN SCHOOLS CLASSES:

In classroom 6x6 tile decoration (one session).  All created then fired or glazed.
