Art 4 You
A Natural Connection
Teaching has always been a natural way for me help other creative people learn how to improve their artistic adventures. From park programs for all ages to advance art center workshops I’ve always enjoyed teaching. In drawing or painting there are so many obstacles that can slow the growth of an artist. Because I’ve been there and continue to learn by taking advance classes myself, I feel I can solve or fix just about anyone’s art challenge.
Lifelong Learning is fun!
Art 4 You
Currently, I’ve transitioned to teaching on Zoom. In the fall of 2022, my in-person classes are being held at the South Bend Museum of Art. Below is a demonstartion work for the Watercolor class.

For this lesson, we will fill the canvas with a wooded landscape. From the sky to the ground cover, it will become a celebration of Fall colors.
