The Waves

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.

Art 4 You


Currently, I’ve transitioned to teaching on Zoom. My acrylic painting classes are sponsored by the Friends of the Indiana Dunes National Park and the Art Barn School, Valparaiso, Indiana.

Classes are free and art supplies are also available at no charge to pick up at the Dunes National Park Visitors Center.
