I’ve received a few emails from parents asking my plans for the fall term in regards to the New Art Center. Unfortunately, I am no longer with the NAC (read more here). I realize the center is still hosting classes I formerly taught, some I created myself. I wish the upcoming instructors nothing, but the best! That’s not to say I’m done with teaching.
